The training qualifications firm become our academy sponsor for the 22/23 season!
GQA Qualifications Limited is an Awarding Body for specialist sectors and occupational roles in glass and fenestration industries, construction, coating and print.
Our U18s and U21s sides will adorn the logo on the front of their shirts for the duration of this campaign. The logo will also feature on the sleeve of our shirt for our Emirates FA Cup first round tie at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.
Lifelong Barnsley fan and CEO of GQA, Mick Clayton spoke of his pride in working with the Club:
"As an existing club partner, and on a personal level as a life-long fan, it is evident that the club is making great strides in their efforts to re-establish themselves at the heart of the community.
"Becoming academy sponsor is a fantastic opportunity to further our involvement, particularly as we at GQA are passionate about developing young people in all aspects of life.
"We firmly believe that this partnership can be a catalyst for a positive influence on football locally at a grass roots and junior level, something we are proud to champion and support, and also give us the opportunity to showcase what the fenestration and wider construction sector can offer.”
Barnsley FC CEO, Khaled El-Ahmad, added:
"We are delighted to welcome GQA to the Barnsley family. It is a fitting partnership, with GQA being an organisation that delivers high-quality training to provide a platform for youth to excel and obtain practical skills.
"We look forward to working with GQA as the season continues."
