The Nottingham College Fast Track Academy

Not­ting­ham Col­lege recent­ly launched this new Fast Track Acad­e­my. It’s designed to help Sport stu­dents explore the full range of sports careers and to con­nect them to teams, clubs and indi­vid­u­als who are mak­ing their mark in the sports indus­try local­ly and regionally.

Togeth­er, and through our Fast Track Acad­e­my, we are able to offer Sport stu­dents a full range of expe­ri­ences in dif­fer­ent sports. 

There are dif­fer­ent mem­ber­ship lev­els for organ­i­sa­tions (bronze, sil­ver and gold). These are all designed to link up our stu­dents with the sport­ing industry.

Not­ting­ham Out­laws is a great addi­tion to our bronze mem­ber­ship, with clear poten­tial to grow into sil­ver sta­tus and even­tu­al­ly lead­ing to a gold mem­ber­ship part­ner­ship with an elite player/​coach/​official and sports per­for­mance academy. 

The club has great ambi­tions that match­es the Fast Track ethos and we are delight­ed to be able to con­firm this partnership. 

Gary Hors­ley — Not­ting­ham Col­lege Fast Track Acad­e­my Director

The mis­sion, vision and val­ues of Not­ting­ham Out­laws will devel­op our stu­dents into Rug­by League and give them a bril­liant insight into the sport and how the club operates. 

Rug­by League is grow­ing across the Mid­lands, and we are excit­ed about where this part­ner­ship can take us.
