16+ Football Education

16 + Football Education Academy…

Recruiting now for September. The A Sporting Hand 16+ Football Education Academy is for 16-18 years old. Students study on a Level 2 or 3 National Foundation Diploma in Sport course, whilst also doing football daily in an environment that mirrors a professional football academy. We have courses in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire. For more information about studying on one of our courses please click on the images below.


Players train 3 days a week and play weekly fixtures in the English Colleges league against teams affiliated to professional clubs. Matches are regularly attended by professional scouts meaning players have opportunities to be spotted.


For us, the education is the most important part of the course and is also a big factor when deciding upon the best path to take post year 11. We have detailed everything you will need to know about the education side of the course to show the benefits of choosing our football education course.
