Female Football and Education Scheme

24 July 2019

A pathway where likeminded, local, talented female footballers can maximise their personal progression both on and off the pitch.

We are delighted to be launching our Female Football & Education programme which will begin in September 2020.

The programme will involve training three times a week for 6-8 hours, by UEFA qualified coaches with a specifically designed training programme aiming to develop players technical, tactical, physical and social aspects of the game. There will also be a competitive games programme available for our students through the English Colleges Football League and cup competitions.

All of the students will be able to access an education route of their choice, provided by our education partner Bishop Laney Sixth Form, who were recently rated a good provider by Ofsted, and where the students average grades have been at a distinction level. Therefore students can choose from a mixture of A Levels, Vocational level 3 BTEC courses and GCSE resits with a BTEC level 2 route.

The courses on offer are as follows:

Level 3 Technical Courses

Successful applicants will require 5 GCSE grades at level 4 and above, including Maths and English, or 4 grades of level 3 to gain access to our level 2 route

We will be holding training and workshop open days over the 2019-20 academic year whilst allowing the students a chance to meet both Norwich City RDP and Bishop Laney Sixth Form staff at these events.
