COVID-19 has had a lasting impact on communities and no more so than Education programmes. Our students have faced a new way of learning through online lessons, previous predicted assessments and have shown great resilience in stepping forwards with a new way of learning.

SWFCCP Post 16 education team have, despite the challenges, continued to deliver high quality lessons and retained 98% of students on programme. This means students are enjoying learning and playing football at Sheffield Wednesday.

The Post-16 education programme delivers in strong partnership with The Sheffield College and feedback from quality audits present as ‘good’ with elements of ‘outstanding’, this shows with a huge 70% of students have achieved their target grade for the academic year which shows a resilient and determined attitude and students should be proud of their achievements. Leanne, Head of QTLA – Landbased, Animal Care, Sport, Protective Services and Business, said ‘ We are really pleased with our relationship with SWFCCP and we look forward to continuing this for this next academic year. Their drive for high quality and putting the student at the centre of what they do is superb.’

As the 21-22 academic years comes to a close, 76% of students who are currently studying at SWFCCP will continue with their next steps of study with us, with 42% of our BTEC students going on to study a degree at SWFCCP showcasing the fantastic work the Education do on a daily basis to ensure we are upskilling and setting up young people for a purposeful life.
