Opportunity for Year 11/12s to continue their education at Norwich City Football Club

The Football Learning programme offers students aged 16-18 the chance to swap a traditional classroom for a learning environment immersed within a professional football club.

The programme enables students to combine their passion for football and Norwich City Football Club alongside an excellent academic provision.

The course sees the theme of football embedded throughout, with learning modules delivered through a footballing context, weekly training sessions and a series of engaging off-site trips and visits.
