ARGYLE'S Community Trust have teamed up with Carn Brea Leisure Centre Trust to provide the only professional Futsal Education Scholarship, right in the centre of Cornwall.The centre, based in Pool, will provided a fully-funded educational course, which starts in September 2013 and will enable 16-19 year olds to qualify outside the traditional school or college setting.
Following successful completion of the course, students will have the chance to apply for five fully-paid apprenticeship placements and put themselves forward for future opportunities at Carn Brea.
As well as offering a clear pathway to University, the course will also provide coaching and employment opportunities within the local community.
