College builds sports links with school

Updated 13/02/2015

As part of Gower College Swansea's ongoing relationship with Birchgrove Comprehensive School's PE department, Year 11 BTEC pupils visit the Gorseinon campus gym and use the new facilities on a fortnightly basis.

In addition, they are able to pick up advice on the BTEC Level 2 Sport course and possible progression opportunities into college.

"This type of collaboration and use of facilities is vital for us in terms of delivering certain BTEC Sport Level 2 units - we just wouldn't be able to offer some units without it," says Birchgrove PE teacher Craig Bonell. "Also, having a rich source of expert advice at hand has been extremely helpful during certain aspects of the BTEC course."
