Places on unique scheme available

Students aged between 16 and 18 are being offered a unique opportunity by the Wolves Community Trust, which will allow them to play, train and compete like a professional footballer, while still continuing their education.
Alongside the Football League, the Trust is offering a two-year, full-time Futsal Scholarship, and will be holding a recruitment event for the September 2013 intake next month.
The programme is open to students aged between 16 and 18, who hold - or will achieve in summer 2013 - four GCSEs at grade C or above, including English and Maths.
The scholarship will see students enrolled on a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport, and will give them the chance to work in a unique environment on a virtual learning platform, whilst also playing and training every day.
What makes the programme unique is that the educational aspect is related to a professional sporting environment, drawing on the expertise that the football club has to offer.
Alongside their studies, students play football every day, working with fully qualified coaches and using Wolverhampton Wanderers' facilities.
Scott, a current first year student on the programme, says of his experience so far: "The course has allowed me to become really excited about my studies. 
"I get to complete lessons at Molineux every day and train in an official Wolves facility, and the course has allowed me to see first-hand how working in this environment can really bring to life the theory elements of the course."
The recruitment event will take place at Molineux on Wednesday 13 March, beginning at 6.30pm. To register your interest, please contact Andy Harston on 07964840611, or email andrewharston@wolves.co.uk.
