Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT)
CTK welcomes a visitor from CACT
CTK St Mary’s was visited recently by Bradley March, a senior football and sports development officer, from the Charlton Athletic Community Trust. CACT (Charlton Athletic Community Trust) is a great organisation that works within local communities that uses football as a means to improve health, education and employment, whilst also reducing crime. Bradley spoke meaningfully about the skills, knowledge and qualities that are required to become an effective sports coach as well as his career in the industry and the work that CACT do for the local community.
Ms Shooman-Taylor, organiser of the presentation, emphasised its importance for the learners. “This was a fantastic talk and exceedingly useful for both our lower and upper sixth BTEC Sport learners.” She states, “for the upper sixth it is helpful because the extra knowledge this will provide towards their Sports Coaching unit is invaluable, and for the lower sixth it will give them a great idea on the types of progression they can expect after studying with us here at CTK St Mary’s.”
The talk was part of CTK’s external speaker programme, where we invite interesting and educated people to share their stories and teach our learners. We have many more speakers lined up for the future and we will keep you informed of them as they occur on our social media pages.
