Football Academy

Our college's Football Academy is run in partnership with 'the Daggers' - Dagenham & Redbridge FC!

Whilst training at our Academy you'll study for a nationally recognised BTEC qualification as well as having fantastic opportunities to develop as a footballer.

You'll either study towards a Level 2 (1 year) or a Level 3 (2 years) in sport or another subject. The Level 3 qualification is equivalent to 3 A Levels, so you'll finish your studies ready to head to university if you want.

Your time with our Football Academy will include:

  • Training with Dagenham & Redbridge FC professional coaches (UEFA B & A Licence)
  • Exposure for opportunities to trial and play with the Daggers' youth team
  • Playing in the National Youth Alliance League
  • Training three times a week and playing at one of our Academy teams on Wednesdays
  • Youth team under-18s trials and first-team development games
  • A chance to participate in our annual residential Seville FC (Spain) tour
  • The chance to apply for an American Football scholarship
  • The opportunity to gain coaching badges
  • Physiotherapist access
  • Courses to suit your academic level and career pathways
