Grace's Story

18-year-old Grace had already agreed to study somewhere else before she came across the Future Pathways programme – deciding it would be more suiting for her.

The combination of taking part in futsal sessions alongside her studies appealed to Grace much more than a standard college structure.

Having struggled with her mental health in the past, Grace knew that she’d be able receive one-to-one support with her tutors – helping her reach deadlines and give her advice on how to progress further.

Grace’s self-confidence has improved massively since initially enrolling onto the Future Pathways programme, and she dedicates this to the support she’s received from our tutors.

“They (the tutors) have gone above and beyond for me during my time studying with the Foundation. I’ve become more confident in myself, and it’s allowed me to keep pushing on instead of giving up.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time studying with Cardiff City FC Foundation and I’ve seen myself grow as a person – I can’t wait to continue my educational journey and see where it takes me.”

Grace received Distinction*, Distinction, Distinction (D*,D,D) and has been offered a place on the Foundation Degree to study Community Football Coaching and Development in September. She hopes to continue her progress and work within the National Health Service in the future.

Llongyfarchiadau Grace, from everyone at Cardiff City FC Foundation!
