Football Education Academy

Oliver Shenton Community Trust

Are you a talented male or female footballer with ambitions of a career in football? If so, Stoke City Community Trust’s Football Education Academy is for you.

New for the 2019/20 season, Stoke City’s Community Trust have partnered with Stoke-on-Trent College to launch a Football Education Academy.

Alongside studies at the College, students will represent Stoke City in 11-a-side competition in the EFL Community & Education Alliance League, training twice a week and receiving top level coaching from professional and experienced Stoke City staff.

There are numerous study options available at Stoke-on-Trent College, including BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sports Coaching and Development or Sports Science.

The programme mirrors the Stoke City Community Trust Futsal programme which has successfully run for the past four years, opening up opportunities for a number of former students to now enjoy full time employment at Stoke City Football Club.

Students will enjoy access to gym facilities, physiotherapy and sports science sessions at the College, as well as receiving perks from representing Stoke City, including training kits and tickets to home games.

For further information on the programme, please email [email protected] or call 01782 592252.
