The County in the Community College programme offers participants the chance to study towards a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sports Performance based at Llanwern High School.

Having achieved this, students are supported in their next pathway whether it be moving on to study various degree programmes across the UK, enrolling on the Foundation Degree in Community Football Coaching and Development, (delivered in partnership with the University of South Wales), playing and studying in America and apprenticeship opportunities with local and national organisations.

Alongside the education element of the programme, the students have the opportunity to train 3 times a week and represent Newport County AFC in a competitive games programme which is overseen by the English Football League Trust.

At County in the Community, we deliver the Community Football Coaching and Development degree and the Foundation Degree in Sports Coaching and Development in partnership with the University of South Wales. This degree allows the students to engage in further education modules and qualifications within a footballing environment.

There is an initial two-year foundation degree which can lead to graduation. However, the opportunity to do a top up year at third year level in order to achieve the full BSc (Hons) in Football Coaching, Development and Administration is available. During this course, participants are given the opportunity to gain the FAW C license qualification in football coaching and can volunteer on the variety of programmes that are delivered by County in the Community.
