Bridgwater & Taunton College (BTC) has been reaccredited with the Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme (TASS) Dual Career accreditation. It was the first in the south west to gain the quality mark, and remains one of only a handful of South West colleges to receive it.
The TASS Dual Career Accreditation Scheme recognises BTC’s commitment to dual career support for talented athletes who are in full time education. Colleges with the mark provide an enhanced level of academic flexibility and understanding which enables talented athletes to balance their studies with a hectic sporting schedule. Achieving the Accreditation formally recognises the institution’s commitment to supporting gifted student-athletes and subsequently giving them the potential to attract future talent.
Sports Development Manager Mason Galloway said

It’s a compliment to the ongoing efforts and forward-thinking of our team and shows how hard we work to provide the best support and opportunities for our students. We pride ourselves on taking an holistic approach that enables our talented students to balance their academic and sporting development.
