Swindon Town Football Education Programme
Swindon Town has a very successful male and female programme.
Why join us ?
This course gives you the unique opportunity to choose the right qualifications you wish to study, including A levels or BTEC whilst undertaking and engaging with your local professional football club Swindon Town. The educational element will be tailored to meet your career aspirational needs over the two years, whilst enabling you to train, play competitive matches against other professional football clubs, and in addition undertake coach education and work experience opportunities, giving you an invaluable insight into the practicalities and skills required to become a professional football coach.
What could this lead to ?
The Football Education Programme Course gives you, the student, the opportunity of gaining valuable football playing and coaching experience, running parallel to studying for your vocational or A level qualifications. After the two years there will be opportunities for you to go to University, or look at pursuing career opportunities within the sports and leisure industry.
As Swindon Town Football in the Community Trust we can offer part time coaching opportunities in relation to you being at University and you on working Holiday Development Courses during half term periods.
Students wishing to pursue their playing opportunities, may wish to explore the possibility of gaining a football scholarship, for example in the United States of America. Talks can be arranged throughout your second year on the course, where we can ask companies and organisations to inform you what opportunities are available within the USA.
What additional trips or enrichment activities does this course include?
Over the two years you will play football fixtures against other professional football clubs on a weekly basis. In addition there will be opportunities to play in National Football competitions. Whilst on the course, trips will be arranged to visit universities, in order for you to have the opportunity of looking at educational options once you have completed the two year course.
