The Fishing Academy (TFA) is a registered charity set up to offer education, support, guidance and alternative provisions for disabled and young people through our 2 main initiatives:

 

  1. Educational Programme (1 year AIM Award)   Link to education details
  2. Introduction to Angling and the Environment (2/3 day short course)  Link to course details

 

 

TFA has been instrumental in creating positive outcomes when supporting young people with behavioral and learning issues, as well as physical disabilities.

 

The one year AIM Award has been formally recognised as a Qualification.

Our short courses also offer the opportunity for participants to learn how to safely take up the sport of Angling as well as increasing environmental awareness and fish welfare.

 

Our flexible approach enables us to offer an educating and rewarding enrichment programme for all ages and abilities so please contact us to discuss your specific needs.

“The biggest compliment that I can pay the work done by the coaches at The Fishing Academy is that, at a time where our school faces financial difficulties, The Fishing Academy project remains one of our biggest priorities and one of our biggest success stories.

Without doubt we will continue to use the project as the alternatives offered by other agencies do not offer value for money or achieve the success that The Fishing Academy has given Blue Coat pupils”
