SPORTS ACADEMY FAQ

DO I NEED TO ATTEND A TRIAL FOR THE SPORTS ACADEMY?

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. 

 HOW LONG IS THE COURSE?

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.

 WHERE WILL I TRAIN?

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. 

 WHERE WILL I STUDY?

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.
