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.Lorraine Armsden, Ellesmere College
The Dynamite programme offers Key Stage 4 students, who are or have been in mainstream education, the chance to gain sports-based qualifications here at Welford Road. We offer a unique service based in the heart of the stadium, in our specially constructed Tigers Education Centre.
Aimed at re-engaging students who may have struggled in mainstream education or have free time within their school timetable, the programme acts as a route for pupils to experience an alternative education process, wrapped inside the world of professional sport.
What can you expect?
Each day will be split into practical and theory sessions, ensuring that physical activity is present each and every day. Our multi sports based sessions are embedded into the theory sessions, which revolve heavily around sports and leisure. All our qualifications are accredited with our staff fully qualified to deliver a fun and engaging timetable.
- BTEC Sport and Active Leisure 1 (Award – Diploma)
- Level 2 Gym Instructors course
- Functional Skills 1 and or 2 in English and Math
Our sessions run from Monday to Thursday (within Leicestershire term times) with sessions starting at 9.30 and finishing at 14.30 daily.
Sessions will cost £65 per day.
Schools should contact Leicester Tigers Health & Inclusion Manager, Sam Swift, directly to discuss any referrals - email [email protected] or call 0759 089 0876.
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.
