A new sports scheme has launched in a Barnet college.

Barnet and Southgate College will lead the talented athlete scholarship scheme (TASS) initiative, helping students to gain qualifications alongside their sport pursuits and supporting students following a dual career route so they can work towards an alternative career during and after their sporting days are over.

Backing the scheme is Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, who said: "I believe we have to a duty to help young people to achieve their potential, whilst prioritising their welfare, wellbeing and education."
