Leeds City College has signed an agreement with STATS – the world’s leading sports data and technology company.
This partnership will give the College’s Higher Education students exclusive access to STATS performance analysis software, used to analyse thousands of worldwide sporting events every year.
Students will also have the opportunity to gain a performance analysis qualification as part of the BSc (Hons) Sports Performance Top-Up degree, delivered by expert staff at Leeds City College to ensure a high level of delivery.
This partnership will also allow students to gain real life experience in the performance analysis domain through the extensive links of STATS with professional clubs. In addition, they will receive employer engagement sessions to advance their professional development skills.
Richard Keys, head of HE Service Professions at Leeds City College, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the students to be at the very heart of this developing sector and we are all excited by the future opportunities this partnership will bring.
“Integrating STATS into our degree programme will ensure our students have in-depth performance analysis knowledge at their fingertips whilst gaining valuable connections in the sporting industry.”
