Courses are delivered using a range of study methods including theory and practical sessions, workshops and work placements.
Students will learn in a professional and clean environment with access to IT-based equipment, a library, a canteen and a games lounge. Students will be required to attend college for approximately 13 hours per week with independent study required to complete coursework.
Our qualified and experienced tutors will be on hand throughout every step of their journey to ensure that they fully understand the potential pathways and are equipped to achieve their academic ambitions.
Students do not have to play or train as part of their course. However, if you are interested in playing we would like to meet and assess players to understand your ability and needs.
Depending on which course you choose, you can achieve your qualification in 8-76 weeks.
These are stimulating vocational courses, covering an expansive range of topics. Students will be assessed via a combination of controlled assessments and both internally and externally marked written and practical assessments.
Our learning facilities at The Jack Carter Centre in Ilford have recently installed 4G football pitches, as well as cricket nets, basketball courts and more for training and matches. There is also a state of the art gym for strength and conditioning and physiotherapy sessions.
Education will be held in a professional and clean classroom environment, at the same location as your training.
With our Academy Director being an ex pro with secured links to higher level clubs and also a first team manager at a semi pro club, the chance is most certainly there! We have links to countless high profile clubs and sport organisations, meaning the pathway into the sport industry at a high level is definitely available to our students! Your progression will depend heavily on your own drive, dedication and commitment to the course.
Progression into university and employment will be an option. Also UK and Overseas Scholarships will all be viable options once qualified.
We can also guide you to getting a range of badges and qualifications e.g. FA coaching and refereeing badges and others relevant to your chosen sport.
Students joining the academy will be required to purchase their academy training kit and tracksuit for a one-off fee.
