A NEW high-performance football programme will give College of Further Education pupils an opportunity to enhance their abilities on-island, Education officials have said.
The two-year course, available to 16- to 19-year-olds, and run in conjunction with the Guernsey Football Association, will allow students to earn enough Ucas points to gain university acceptance.
Education minister Robert Sillars was pleased to be working in partnership with the GFA.
‘We have been very impressed with the programme that has been drawn together by Tony Vance and his GFA colleagues – it aligns well with the sports studies programme that has been offered by the CFE,’ he said.
CFE principal Steve Dudley, pictured, was delighted with the collaboration between the college, the GFA and the Guernsey Sports Commission.
‘In this case, our sports students will be able to benefit from the excellent expertise of the coaching staff at the GFA as well as the college staff in our sports programme,’ he said.
