QPR College Academy is a full time elite football and education programme. Players aged from 16 - 19 have the opportunity to live the life of professional academy scholars just like the QPR youth team combining their education and football development.
Based at Rectory Park, the home of Middlesex FA, the players have football 4 days a week of football which include training and then competing in the FA U19 National Football Youth League.
When the players aren't taking part in their football programme they are studying for their BTEC Level 1, 2 or 3 sports qualifications.
The students engage at all different levels with the club from doing work experience, playing matches against the QPR youth team, talks regarding their career opportunities, diet & nutrition to attending first team matches as well as playing and training in the QPR kit.
To date the programme has exceeded all expectation and there have been numerous highlights including:
- players completing their FA Level One coaching qualiftcion
- Reaching the national league cup semi final to Liverpool
- Playing the clubs academy team at the training ground
- 2 players going on trial with the under 18's
To top it off, at the end of the season the players will get the chance to play at Loftus Road for an end of season tournament.
This programme is to keep the players in full time education and to feel part of the club. We will create a pathway for the students to assist them in reaching their full potential within what ever their goals are. Some players want to to play football at the highest level, some want University options and some want jobs in sports so as a club we can give them the opportunities and knowledge to best support their development.
