Huge congratulations goes out to Bradley Fox, our current Disability Officer, who has completed his BSc (Hons) Football Coaching, Development and Administration degree at the University of South Wales.
Bradley’s road to success began in September 2014, where he undertook Sheffield Wednesday’s BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport. Alongside his studies, Bradley in his first year started to volunteer with the Disability Programme. His commitment to the programme granted Bradley the National EFL Student of the Year award.
Whilst Bradley was in his second year, the Community Programme entered him onto the F.A. Level 1 course which further enhanced his coaching and leadership skills. Shortly after completing his BTEC, the role as a Disability Football Officer became vacant at the Community Programme. In October 2016, Bradley was successfully appointed as the new Disability Officer where he managed the programme on a 10-hour contract per week.
During September 2016, Bradley’s BSc (Hons) in Football Coaching, Development and Administration in partnership with the University of South Wales commenced. He was still balancing his role as Disability Officer whilst at university.
“My degree has been substantially supported by my role as the Disability Football Officer. It has certainly benefited my role, given me fresh ideas for upcoming events, and provided a new way of learning. I have been thoroughly engaged in both roles as each of them offer something different, but at the same time work hand-in-hand with one another.”
Once again, well done to Bradley for his compelling journey.
Could this be you? Study with us on our 16-18 programme.
