Last week was a big one for our learners at our partner academies as across the country it was RESULTS WEEK for both A-level and BTEC students, we saw high success rates across all of our academies, including; Salford Red Devils, Rochdale Sacred Heart, Manchester International Football Academy ('MIFA'), Aspire2Be and London Football College. With outstanding results to be celebrated from both 1st year learners on programme, and final year students whose time with us has now drawn to a conclusion; these learners are progressing onto bright futures within University, Apprenticeships or Employment.  
 
We caught up with one of our MIFA graduates- Taigh Wilson (pictured below) who achieved the highest BTEC results possible - D*D*D*  
Taigh is now looking forward to attending Edge Hill University this September to study Sport Management and Coaching, and we were able to catch his immediate thoughts post-results... 
"I am delighted with my results because I got the grades I wanted and needed. I feel I worked really hard the past two years to gain these results and I couldn’t be happier with them! 
 
In September I start my 3 year course at Edge Hill University. I will be studying Sport Management and coaching. I decided to do this course firstly; because the course itself looks very interesting and fun and then secondly; sport management is something I always wanted to do because of the variety of opportunities it brings with it. Finally coaching is a hobby and a love of mine therefore I am looking forward to continuing with this at a higher level."

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... 
Off the back of last week’s victory we jumped at the chance to go back to Salford Red Devils Academy and get a word with the man of the match; forward 2nd year player Sam Bardsley (circled in the team photo). It was a very busy visit as not only did we get to discuss the game with Sam, we also got the opportunity to sit in on a training session and observe the coaches in action! With so much to talk about it’s been tough to condense into one blog but we’ve done our best... 
Last Wednesday was the Rugby League game between Salford Red Devils U19's and Wigan Warriors U19's so we thought we’d sneak a little trip out of the office and go and experience some of the action firsthand......
