Bede Institute of Sport and Education

Wednesday 20th November 2019, 7.00-9.00pm

(6.45pm arrival for 7.00pm start)


We can’t wait to share our fantastic new Bede Institute of Sport and Education (ISE) with you (read more here).

Through the ISE, we will offer all of our students a package of athlete support including coaching, nutritional advice, physiotherapy, strength and conditioning, and sport psychology all alongside their full-time study programme, within an inclusive dual career environment.

Our Campus Principal, Ben Robinson, says of the ISE: “Healthy lifestyles, mental wellbeing and positive progression will be the cornerstones of the institute. The aim is to enable young athletes to increase their academic attainment and progression while developing their sporting performance.”

It’s not just the elite athletes that can reap the benefits: “It is widely recognised that sport and activity offer an array of wide reaching benefits for students from boosting concentration to stress relief. The whole ethos of the institute is about using sport as a vehicle for positive progression for all students.” 

Already holding Dual Career Accredited College status by the Talented Athletes’ Scholarship Scheme (TASS), a Sport England-backed programme, Bede has a number of sport academies already up and running, including women’s football and men’s football, and netball and rugby academies, new for September 2020.

Whether you are a talented athlete or simply enjoy sport and its effect on your wellbeing, our brand new Institute of Sport and Education will have something for everyone!

Come along to our VIP launch event to find out more. You will be able to hear all about the importance of dual career support for young people from the National Director of TASS, Guy Taylor, and take part in taster sessions for our sports academies.
