100 second year students, across all sixth form and colleges that the team currently delivers to, attended a special celebration event at the Etihad Stadium in the Tunnel Club.
Staff and students were treated to food and drinks before participating in an award ceremony and presentation, looking back on their two years with CITC and commemorating all they have achieved.
Lois Daniels, Education Officer, said: “This has been our first BTEC celebration event in the stadium.
"It has been a fantastic occasion where we were able to bring all our students and staff together from our partner colleges, along with the CITC team.”
“We hope that is has been a memorable occasion for our fantastic students who’ve worked incredibly hard over the past two academic years and deserve to be celebrated!”
The programme provides an opportunity for students who are passionate about football and their education, to combine the two as part of this course.
The curriculum provides students with an insight into what life would be like coaching in an academy session, through the way in which CITC staff deliver sessions.
The team currently delivers in four sixth form and colleges, Oldham College, Cheadle College, Ashton Sixth Form and Connell College.
Coaches are able to adapt their approach, the content and physical activity sessions in order to best meet the requirements of the college/group that they are working with.
