FEATURES OF THE COURSE

2 YEAR COURSE

The academy provides a two year full time course for school leavers 16-18 years of age, who can prove they have football talent or skills to potentially progress to a career in football.

8 SESSIONS A WEEK

The football is structured around eight practical football sessions per week. The focus of these sessions is on tactical, technical and physical ability and conditioning, as well the importance of psychological elements of the game.

A LEVELS

Alternatively, talented football students can choose suitable A Level qualifications through our education provider Birmingham Metropol & Sutton College tutors who have provided nineteen years experience of a similar programme and currently support Aston Villa academy youngsters each week. The course will also offer english and maths resits for year 11 school leavers.

FA LEVEL 1/2 COACHING AWARDS

Students will develop their core knowledge of understanding the game through participating FA LEVEL 1 and FA level 2 coaching awards. These awards are recognised by UEFA and FIFA worldwide. The qualifications will greatly improve the individuals game, knowledge and coaching experience. This also creates an attractive curriculum vitae if students opt for further education with scholarships in America or Australia at the end of our programme to develop a career in industry.
