Enhance your experience through football

If football is your passion then we have the opportunity for you to develop your skills alongside your studies. Students studying either one of our sport courses can join our specialist football training and development programme which is delivered by our partners City in the Community (CITC).

We all share a “passionate commitment to excellence”. Our aim is to develop good people on the pitch and in the classroom. Students who opt to join this training and development programme will football training or match time as part of their timetable every day.

Our coaches are all qualified to UEFA B level, to improve players’ knowledge, understanding and game management.

Each of the sessions are set at a level to challenge the individual, where there’ll be different themes. These will be split over the session, where you’ll regularly take part in the different themed topics and end the session with a conditioned game.

Over the season you’ll be completing in the AOC and National Youth League. You’ll play a number of established football clubs, where the aim is to raise standards for and aspirations of talented football players in full-time education and outside of the Academy system.

You can indicate your interest in this additional programme on your application form and will have the opportunity to find out more by attending one of our recruitment events or at interview.
