Football Development Centres

The Palace for Life Foundation’s Football Development Centres offer both male and female players the opportunity to broaden their educational learning while participating in a fully comprehensive training and playing programme.

What?

Male centres are currently established at:

LSEC – Bromley College
Harris South Norwood
Basingstoke College of Technology
Northampton College
FCA Beckenham
Stanley Park High
Volenti Academy – Partner

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

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