Throughout the course you’ll work with UEFA B qualified coaches from City in the Community and take part in a technical training programme.

You’ll also have the opportunity to compete in the English Colleges League each week, with added qualification opportunities, including a FA Level 1 in football coaching course, also available.

And with a chance to attend both local and international tournaments, as well as to volunteer on some of City in the Community’s award winning projects, this is a programme you don’t want to miss out on.

Year 2 student Tom shares that sentiment, commenting: “The course has been nothing but first class from day one and training at the same facility as the likes of Aguero and Silva is mind blowing for a college student. 

“Not only have I improved as a player and gained a valuable qualification, I am now coaching football for City in the Community in the evenings.”
