Figure image

Many of our students have benefitted greatly attending the Dynamite Programme. They have passed BTEC Level 1 Awards, BTEC Certificates and two students are now working their way towards Diploma’s.

Dynamite Programme

The Dynamite programme offers 14-16 year old students, who are or have been in mainstream education, the chance to gain sports-based qualifications here at Welford Road.

Aimed at re-engaging students who may have struggled in mainstream education or have free time within their school timetable, the programme acts as an alternate route for some pupils to succeed in the sports industry.

Fancy a future career in sport?

From coaches, to physios, to nutritionists, a career in sport opens many doors and Dynamite could be the first step in the right direction.

Pupils take part in a multi-sports and fitness curriculum gaining practical experience. They will also have the opportunity to participate and join local clubs, go on visits or trips, as well as work with specialist coaches here at Leicester Tigers.

Getting involved

Any Key Stage 4 students are able to take part – available sessions take place weekly (Mon-Fri) and we ask that schools refer students for consideration.

Once accepted, we will set up a meet-and-greet session with the student and the school, where they can visit the stadium and meet the Dynamite team. From here a timetable is built around specific needs.

There is a fee of £60 per day per student for this service.

Schools should contact Leicester Tigers Inclusion Manager, Sam Swift, directly to discuss any referrals - email [email protected] or call 0759 089 0876.
