Academic qualifications cover BTEC level 1-3 dependent on the venue.

The Academy students have personalised schedules and timetables in order to balance an in-depth football development programme with an academic qualification. All aspects of football are catered for and the programmes support students’ exit routes both academically and in a football environment – with students going on to university, apprenticeships, scholarships and professional football contracts.

The academies provide a great opportunity for students to expand their education while learning about and playing the game they all love.
