Football Academy

Full Time

About the course

New College Football Academy provides both academic and sporting excellence delivered by highly qualified FA coaches. This programme offers inclusive football programmes for both boys and girls alongside full-time education and is sanctioned and supported by the Wiltshire Football Association. You will train up to four days a week.

You will have the opportunity to play for New College Academy in Saturday League Football (South West Counties Youth League) and mid-week in the Wiltshire Youth Floodlit Football League. Alongside your football training you will take a full-time academic programme.

Entry requirements

Entry to your academic pathway will be dependent on specific criteria for each course. Entry into the Academy is based on trials which are held throughout the year during half terms and holiday periods.

Where next?

Future pathway opportunities can include non-league football, league football, UK Universities, US scholarships and routes into coaching or other work opportunities.

Work experience and employability

This course does not contain a specific work experience component, but has other activities to help you develop employability skills. If you would like to undertake a work placement alongside your studies, our Employability Team can help.

What additional resources will I need?

There is an annual fee of £350 in the first year and £300 for the second year of Football Academy. This can be paid as a lump sum or New College can offer payment plans if required. You will receive a training kit in Year 1 which will last you for the duration of your involvement in the Football Academy. These are ordered once first payment has been received.
