16 + Football Education Academy…
Recruiting now for September 2019. The A Sporting Hand Football Education Academy is for 16-19 year olds. Students train like a professional footballer daily, whilst studying on a Level 3 BTEC Sports course. Both the football and education take place at professional or semi professional football clubs with excellent facilities.
The Football: If you still aspire to become a professional footballer, this is the closest experience to the real thing, with students living the life of a professional player and training daily. Matches are regularly attended by professional scouts, meaning players have opportunities to be spotted.
The Education: Not everyone can become a professional footballer unfortunately. Our course ensures you are fully set up to succeed in the sports industry if you don’t progress into the pro game. Sports coaching qualifications and enough UCAS points for university is what we ask students to work towards.
