At Newtown College, We run a L2 First Certificate in Sport and Public Services which is the equivalent to 4 GCSE’s alongside L1 Sports Leaders Award. This allows progression onto the level 3 courses or into employment.
Our Level 3 Sport qualifications, allow our students to achieve a variety of relevant vocational qualifications, such as the Active Young Leaders Award, L2 Community Sports Leaders Award, Higher Sports Leaders, YMCA Level 2 Fitness Instructor and Safeguarding. This enables them to carry out community sports coaching in the local primary schools and helping out the local sports development unit with festivals and URDD. Students also get the opportunity to work with the disability officer by helping out at N-Able (a disability sport club).
The Level 3 Extended Diploma in Uniformed Public Services has been designed to give an overall view of each aspect of the services that operate within the UK. We work closely with the Uniformed Public Services including the fire service, armed forces, police and paramedics. Students experience a wide range of outdoor activities from kayaking to mountain walking and have a number of talks with visiting specialists.
The Football Academy train and play home matches at the new 3G pitch at Latham Park. We also use the following facilities at Maldwyn Leisure Centre: sports hall, astroturf pitch, fitness studio and fitness suite.
