Velocity Football director Justin Merritt was the voice of the full-time educational course’s social media on Thursday night when answering a series of questions on Twitter.
Less than three weeks remain until Velocity Football officially opens its doors to the first crop of students at Oxford City’s Community Stadium in Marston on Monday, September 7. And as part of the team’s drive to promote the BTEC and Higher Education qualifications and opportunities Velocity Football can offer to post-GCSE, and A Level students, Justin took control of the Velocity Twitter account to answer frequently asked question about the courses.
Questions touched on how Velocity operates, the team behind the educational courses, and if work experience opportunities in a real fast-paced football environment are offered during students’ time of study.
Justin said: “Everyone at Velocity Football has a great passion to deliver the best education and work experience opportunities to students that decide to enrol, and I was delighted to answer any questions our growing social media audience had to ask.
“These are exciting times at Velocity Football. We have the chance to create a pathway to success in the football and sport industry for youngsters coming out of schools that have only just received their GCSE and A-Level results. With places on our male and female programmes remaining, I look forward to hearing from more interested students that can be Oxfordshire’s next generation of outstanding coaches, physios, players, and more.”
Justin also appeared on BBC Radio Oxford on Thursday night with Lauren Haynes, head coach of Velocity’s female programme. You can listen to the pair’s full interview by skipping to 1:11:20 here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p08mm3wv.
