Zoe was a student at Everton Sixth Form College completing a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport June 2015. She was a mature, hardworking
student who worked independently to produce work of an excellent standard. Zoe grasped all opportunities offered to her and gained in confidence developing new skills throughout her time with us. Zoe gained a distinction grade for all units she completed and finished with a D*D*D* profile – the highest level 3 grading possible. Whilst a student at Everton Sixth Form Zoe represented the sixth form council at various meetings across Liverpool, she also completed
various coaching courses such as her FA level 1 and gave up her time freely to help others and volunteer for Everton in the Community. Zoe is now studying a sport science degree at Bangor University, benefiting from an academic scholarship on the strength of her grades attained with us at Everton. Zoe is an active sports person and she enjoys coaching primary children sharing her passion and enthusiasm for sport, developing their skills and confidence. Zoe is on track to complete her degree course with a First class Honours degree and has plans to continue her studies at Masters Level. Zoe often drops in so we can keep track of her progress and she has been invited to talk to some of our students and assist in teaching with our sport science units.
Liam started with Everton Sixth Form as a level 2 student studying sport and GCSE English and maths. Liam thrived in the sixth form environment and developed into a mature, polite young man who was a pleasure to teach. After successfully completing his level 2, Liam studied BTEC level 3 sport and attained pass and merit grades overall. This was an excellent result for him and we are proud of his achievements. Liam combined his studies with his love of football and was the captain of our college team. Liam was respected by his team mates and his leadership skills ensured that teamwork and success followed. Liam was unsure of his next steps but always knew that he wanted to play football. Sixth form staff assisted Liam with applying for various apprenticeships but he was still unsure of his next steps. Liam knew he wouldn’t suit office work and eventually applied to train to become a roofer. Liam now combines this with his love of football and plays at a semi-professional level for St Helens Town.
After achieving MMM on his BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport Michael accepted a Soccer scholarship at Rose State College in Oklahoma City. Michael said “I was excited and nervous but mainly excited at the prospect of playing Soccer in America”. Michael firmly believes that his two years studying at Everton Sixth Form College stood him in good stead and prepared him well for his undergraduate degree which combined Soccer with Sport Science.
Going from a small town like Formby to a huge City in Oklahoma was quite a shock to Michael especially with the very high temperatures that he had to get used to. When he first arrived in August 2017 the average daily temperatures were very high in the mid 30 degrees. When the college work started he did struggle to get his head round the amount of studying that he need to do. His major is Health & Sports Science which covers so many different subjects and it’s quite hard but he is keeping at it because he wants to succeed.
Michael now shares an apartment with other scholars who originate from Congo, Italy and the UK. Michael said that “he loves being at Rose State College and I am looking forward to the next semester”.
