Phil Oliver

College Role: Tutor & Coach

After studying a BSc Sport Development and Sport Studies degree and then graduating with a teaching qualification. I started working at Everton Football College in 2019 as the tutor/coach with the first cohort of students at our Jericho site, having had 5 years’ experience as the Lecturer of Football at Hugh Baird College. My previous teaching role was combined with a part time role as an Academy coach and International Academy coach at Liverpool FC where I was fortunate enough to coach in over 14 countries across Europe, North America and Asia. Through this role I was selected to be one of the representatives for LFC to establish an International Academy in Japan where I spent a year based in Yokohama. As an Evertonian and season ticket holder it has been my lifelong ambition to be a part of Everton and the Football College. I am a UEFA A Licenced coach and I coordinate our performance centre players based at Jericho Lane FA Hub.
