SWFCCP remain committed to providing clear pathways for learners enrolling onto their Education programme. In addition to this new pathway, SWFCCP already have direct routes into the SWFC Academy, providing a professional level pathway for individuals of the highest ability. Away from playing football, SWFCCP also demonstrate clear progressions for their learners with industry recognised Level 3 qualifications, meaning learners can finish their studies and progress straight into industry if University is not their desired next step.
