New degrees come to county

This September, a new round of degree-level courses will begin at Shrewsbury Colleges Group, which has been successfully teaching higher education (HE) courses for over 20 years.

Former ice hockey star Mike Jones from Shrewsbury graduated from a Level 4 Foundation Degree in Sports and Physical Education last summer and then did a one-year top up to a full BSc in Coaching and Physical Education at Staffordshire University, the College’s partner university. Mike, who’s now working at Thomas Telford School, will embark on his Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) this September.
Mike says, “Before I started the course, I was playing professional ice hockey for various teams in Europe and the UK. I was working at Bridgnorth Endowed School as a cover teacher and fit my studies around my job.

HE & Education Lead Helen Fellows explains, “We have over 20 years’ experience in teaching higher level courses. In terms of sport, our impressive facilities include a Sports Centre with sports halls, gym, 12 outdoor football pitches and an athletics track. Our 3G Football Pitch is a state-of-the-art, third generation floodlit pitch. It is a competition-standard and FA (Football Association) approved 11 v 11 pitch. The pitch also features American Football goal posts.
“We’ve developed strong industry links with all our HE courses, both locally and nationally. With sport our links include Shrewsbury Town Football Club – we are their official education partners – as well as links with national health and leisure companies such as the Mosaic Group.”
