York College is unique in offering a bespoke programme of study for talented students in three different Development Centres; the Sport Development Centre, the Music Development Centre and the Performing Arts Development Centre.
Each Development Centre provides specialist training for students wishing to pursue higher education courses and careers in these subjects:
Sports Development Centre
The Sports Development Centre is available to talented players aged between 16 and 19 years. Students will follow a full-time education programme across the range of A Level and Vocational courses available at York College, as well as receiving expert coaching in their chosen sport. All students will take part in trials; these will take place around Easter.
Successful involvement in any of the Sports Development Centre programmes will provide opportunities to progress into: careers in professional/semi-professional sport (this is only for those who show exceptional development), coaching, refereeing, work in sport and recreation, further and higher education available at York College, and overseas coaching and possible scholarships.
