MEET EDD  
"THE HEAD"  
OF EDUCATION & PARTNERSHIPS.  
This past week has been a very busy one for us at Onside Education. Spring has begun (at least officially even if the weather hasn’t quite got the memo!) and we have had a lot going on with new video releases, academy visits and attending Skills North West at EventCity. 
 
To continue on from a blog we did a little while ago where we caught up with Onside tutor Ben Pedley, we thought we'd do the same again and do a feature to help people get to know our Rochdale Sacred Heart tutor; Ant Curran, a little better. Ant joined us at Onside, in summer last year as a popular addition to the team. Ant completed his undergraduate degree in Sports Science at Manchester Metropolitan University, after which he was then awarded a full scholarship by the University to do his Masters in Sports Coaching. Whilst doing his Masters degree he completed 2 years as an intern at Manchester City F.C working as a Performance Analyst. 
Then proceeded on to do a lifelong learning PGCE at the University of Huddersfield before starting work at Rochdale Sacred Heart as a tutor and coach, as part of starting work here at Onside as a tutor and an assessor. 
Ant is also currently in the final stages of completing his UEFA B license in coaching Football. 
This week has been National Apprenticeship week, the theme for which has been celebrating the success of apprenticeships and the benefits they yield for everyone, including;  
• Individuals 
• Organisations 
• The wider economy 
Working to encourage others to look at apprenticeship programs as a great opportunity to progress into a desired career; learning vital skills on the job whilst receiving training and wages. To celebrate the apprenticeship learners we have here at Onside we thought we'd use this blog to feature a couple of them and they're employers and hear about how apprenticeships have worked to enhance their career prospects and development. 
On that note we offer a number a number of apprenticeships in:- sports, fitness & personal training, teaching, early years childcare, team leading and hospitality. To find out more about the apprenticeships we offer click here

Salford Red Devils Education Academy had a massive day last Friday when they opened up for the first league game between Salford Devils RLFC and Wigan Warriors RLFC on the main pitch and beat Wigan Warriors Education Academy 46-16!! Everyone was riding high off the back of this fantastic win, and when not training or in lessons a good portion of time was spent re-watching footage of the game and reliving the highlights. However, between all this we did manage to catch a quick interview with man of the match Tom Farr (pictured below) and hear all about the game from his perspective...
