Skills North West, New Videos, Advanced Learner Loans & Much More!
Posted on 26th March 2018 at 14:22
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.
We’ll start with Skills North West, an inspiring event held over the course of two days at EventCity designed to showcase different education, training and career options available for young people aged 14-19 to help them make informed choices about their future.
The event was extremely busy and we got to talk to a variety of young people, and those who help them make their decisions i.e. parents, guardians and careers advisers. We experienced a lot of interest, with some of our most popular courses being our childcare/early years educator courses,

Overall, the event was great to attend- if you were there and filled in one of our expressions of interests forms then look out for us contacting you shortly!
The week also saw our YouTube channel become very busy with 3 NEW VIDEOS uploaded, including the footage we collected from last months Level 2 Multi-Skills course...
The videos provide insight into the types of activities that participants got involved in whilst enrolled on the course; both theoretical and practical. The course is a fabulous way for Primary Schools to evidence effective and sustainable use of the Primary PE and Sport Premium. Members of staff who deliver physical education sessions to primary children are up skilled and given the confidence to deliver sessions around FMS skills, which engage all children and set the building blocks for lifelong participation in physical activity.

We are also currently enrolling for our next delivery of the course in April (21st & 28th), testament to its popularity we already have limited spaces left- get in touch now to ensure you don't miss out: E- firstname.lastname@example.org T- 01257 278131
In addition we have also uploaded a video all about how the advanced learner loans system here at Onside Education could work to benefit you and help you gain your qualifications with us in areas such as health, fitness instruction, personal training, childcare and teaching.
If you are aged 19 or over, a UK resident for at least 3 years and enrolling on a level 2, 3, 4 or 5 qualification then you could be entitled to an advanced learner loan.
The loan covers the full costs of the course and you don’t start paying back until you are earning a salary of £21,000 or above.
We also took time out of our week to go and visit our Aspire2Be partner Football education academy in Coventry as part of a secret project we are currently working on at Onside, meaning we don't have footage we can disclose yet (trust us it's good and will definitely be worth the wait!).
However, what we can say is that it was great to see first hand the enthusiasm and energy from both the students and the coaches at Aspire2Be. The elite facilities, resources and teaching all contribute to afford giving students at the academy the best platform and opportunities to pursue their ambitions for the future. Football trial dates for Aspire2Be 2018-19 academic intake are upcoming next month- including trials for a brand new girls Football academy!
Boys trial date- 6th April
Girls trial date- 5th April
