Supporting Our Students

We work closely with Kent County Council offering provision for students with Special Educational Needs. We also work closely with JACE Training and KCC offering provision for mainstream students and for students with higher needs.

We have an extremely positive and proactive relationship with KCC in supporting higher needs students.

All students will be taught by subject specialist qualified and experienced lecturers helped by learning support staff operating to an effective staff to student ratio of working in small groups with close support and offering one to one support where required and effective pastoral support through designated personal mentors.

Where necessary English and Mathematics will be delivered through functional skills qualifications to those who have not achieved GCSE 4 or above. Those that have achieved English, and Mathematics will have it embedded into their core sports qualification.

Educational Programmes

As an Approved NCFE Centre, the academic curriculum offers 16–24-year-olds (19-24 with an EHCP) a NCFE qualification in sport ranging from entry level up to level three dependant on the students’ academic grade on entry at both K Sports Cobdown and Baypoint Club, Sandwich.

Depending on each individual students’ needs will depend on the length and level of study, however a three-year programme is available, and we have no grade entry requirements to access our education programmes.

Relevant work placement will be arranged with local sports partners based on everyone’s future work aspirations. Examples of this is where some of our students will support primary school sport events, local sports clubs, football clubs and sports organisations.

Lee Suter

Overall my time at K Sports was very successful, the course can be as good or bad as you make it depending on your aspirations and work ethic. K Sports was the best decision for me as a stepping stone for a better life.

Archie Lally

I had two very good years at the K Sports U19 Academy improving my education and football. I was introduced to the 1st team and am still involved now. A big reason for this is the staff understanding about how and what were the best ways to work effectively.
