As a member of the Football College, you will have the opportunity to develop your skills for life in practical settings through work-related learning, these may include work experience opportunities both local and abroad in countries such as China, Spain, Aruba, America and South Africa.
Although Covid 19 has limited our work experience options during this current academic year, we have been fortunate to work with Equip Coaching providing coaching opportunities for students and have sent students to Aruba and China to take part in coaching projects. The Dallas Cup also provides students with the opportunity to taste what it is like to achieve a sport scholarship in America staying with families and playing performance level football.
This is the opportunity to put your new skills into practice, boosting your employability and gaining valuable experience for Higher Education applications. Gaining experience and skills, you will also be eligible to qualify for the Everton in the Community Volunteer Awards to help with future job applications.
