Places are still available to study at Brooksby Melton College in the new academic year, with the added opportunity of engaging in rugby activity with Leicester Tigers.
There are three levels of rugby involvement at the college in Melton Mowbray, with opportunities to enjoy coaching sessions and games led by the Tigers alongside studies.
Enrichment offers unlimited spaces and up to two hours of rugby training each week alongside chosen studies. There may also be access to additional hours of training with the development group if academic timetable allows.
Development provides unlimited spaces for players who can access six hours of training alongside bespoke timetables for BTEC Level 3 Sport, Sport Science and Agriculture, and Level 2 Sport.
ACE (formerly AASE) is a programme for 60 selected players (30 from each year group) including members of the Leicester Tigers academy who can study Level 3 BTEC Sport, Sport Science or Agriculture and have access to eight hours of training each week in their bespoke timetable. Teams also play fixtures in the ACE (Academies & Colleges Education) League.
Study places and accommodation are available now in the development and enrichment groups for September 2020, with team selection fluid between the groups.
To highlight the opportunities available, Tigers took part in BMC’s virtual open day online last weekend, with the college providing information on study, learning support, accommodation, transport and facilities.
