Education & Football Development Programme

The Education & Football Programme offers students aged 16-18 the opportunity to develop their football skills whilst building their knowledge of sport.

The programme is a recognised national qualification (NCFE Diploma in Sport) that also gives all participants the opportunity to head to University upon completion if desired. We are working with WV Active Aldersley which will offer 3G Football pitches for training and matches along with gym access for all participants.
