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

The Female Football & Education Programme is an outstanding opportunity for young talented footballers between the ages of 16-19 to continue their academic, footballing and career development.

The programme provides the chance for players to combine an intensive 11-a-side football training and college fixture programme with a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport, over a two-year period.

The female college programme will be taking part in the English College FA Premier League.
