Students on the programme will benefit from the expertise and experience of East Coast College’s highly skilled tutor and support team. Working across a generic qualification pathway covering employability and personal development allows all desired progression routes to be supported.

Small class sizes and a dedicated classroom support team ensures that all students are supported in line with their additional needs and are able to flourish.

Students completing the Pass Programme will work towards developing the skills to progress in their Maths & English, personal & social skills and employability skills. All of these will create pathways that could lead to other full time study programmes, onto apprenticeships or into a supported Internship.

A comprehensive football coaching programme allows for individual and team development, through a series of technical and tactical sessions across the week, based around both the full and small sided versions of the game.

Players will also take part in a series of fitness activities using the college fitness suite to support their physical development alongside a series of fixture and visit experiences.

Players selected for squads will have the opportunity to represent Norwich City Football Club against other programmes, professional clubs and colleges.

Students who have the ability to progress, have a clear and proven pathway to do so through the Foundation’s extensive disability football provision and FA talent hub status.

Throughout their time on the programme, students are surrounded by positive role models who have experience in a variety of areas, and provide a support network for the students.

Students are also supported with their off-field development through our Life Skills Programme which focuses on topics that complement both the student and programme’s needs. Over the two years, students will receive workshops and additional support in the following core areas:

Alcohol awareness CV writing

Driving awareness

Drug awareness Extremism awareness Mental health

Online safety

Personal finance

Sexual health/relationships

"The programme has really supported my needs since I’ve been here. The staff have been amazing helping me to achieve higher than my expectations."
