The Academy will run as part of the Diploma in sport (level 1, 2 and 3) which equates to a Pearsons BTEC Level (1,2 or 3) in Sport QCF. It is therefore a priority to both parties that all football players are fully supported to reach their educational targets as well as developing as a footballer. As Hopwood Hall College say: ‘A work hard play hard ethos is expected from all students’.

This unique training programme which combines the Paris Saint-Germain Academy England with a diploma in sport is led by qualified, highly experienced and respected coaches. Students will cover a variety of topics including; anatomy and physiology in sport, sports coaching, nutrition, sports psychology, sport as a business, sports therapy just to name a few!

Once completing level 3, the course provides a pathway for students to either go on to further education (university) or start their career in a variety of fields which may include sports coaching, PE assistant in schools, armed forces, sports therapist, sports journalist, sports business and marketing, gym instructor.
