Our full time, fully funded Level 3 Diploma is designed for school leavers who wish to actively pursue a career in sport and football, while gaining a fantastic qualification and education to progress your off the pitch opportunities.
In year 1 students will undertake a Diploma in Sport and Physical Activity progressing onto a Extended Diploma in their studies during year 2. Our classroom environment is fully inclusive and engages students to think for themselves as a young adult.
This is a recognised qualification which can lead to university, apprenticeships, and employment.
Students will cover a wide variety of units including: Business, coaching, self-employment, fitness, nutrition and many more.
You will be coached by ex-professional football player and now Manchester United International Head Coach Robin van der Laan, who will put your through our football development plan and scheme to improve our performance as a player both on and off the pitch.
With opportunities to play in the Invitational College leagues and organised friendly games, students will enjoy an enriched football programme alongside their studies.

“The course really benefitted me as it prepared me for the workplace and a career in sport. The course gave me the desire to become a better football player but also showed the importance of the off the field education.”
