Cheltenham Town Community Trust are once again recruiting 16 students between the ages 16-18 to become part of the Futsal and Education Scholarship Programme for September 2016. Students enrol onto a 2 year full time education programme, studying Level 3 BTEC in Sport (Equivalent to 3 A levels), whilst competing in a national Futsal league representing Cheltenham Town FC.


All students are guaranteed to play in the matches at every fixture. The Futsal and Education Scholarship Programme, going into its seventh year, delivers a first class, full time education alongside professional Futsal coaching. The Scholars study at the football club in our interactive classroom and play competitive Futsal fixtures against other professional Football Clubs including Southampton, West Brom & Cardiff City. 


 Cheltenham Town Community Trust have run the Level 3 BTEC in Sports Studies now for 6 successful years, with a large percentage of the scholars achieving grades high enough to enrol to universities across the country. The course is Fully Funded (Free) and all students are registered with Swindon Academy Sixth Form.


Aaron Lowe (Student): “The first I heard about the Futsal an Education was on the official Cheltenham Town website. I'm very glad that I took the opportunity to apply as it has been a great experience for me, both playing a new and enjoyable sport, to being able to gain a qualification that can help me in the future. The teachers and coaches are brilliant and all push you to achieve your best on and off the pitch and they also support you to reach your goals and targets for both education and Futsal.”


The 16 players will follow the same coaching patterns as the other Cheltenham Town FC Scholars, with a typical weekly schedule consisting of 2 training sessions, 12 hours of Education and a fortnightly fixture in the Futsal National Youth League, as well as receiving full CTFC kit.
