Come and train and play futsal in our brand new arena and gain nationally recognised qualifications vital for employment!

Many students dream of playing football and coaching at high levels, and the Football Development Programme offers the chance to pursue this goal whilst gaining nationally recognised qualifications and practical experience in this global industry.

There is also a national and international shortage of qualified football coaches, and the qualifications and experience you will gain may open the door to an exciting career in this global industry.

The College has partnered with Portsmouth In The Community (@PompeyITC) and formed the Football Development Programme to offer the highest standards of football coaching development to students on the Island. Programmes range from Level 1 to Level 3, with the potential for students to progress onto Foundation Degrees in Sport and beyond. All students will have the opportunity to play competitively representing the college in weekly league and academy football matches. Students will be coached intensively by professional coaches to improve their fitness and progress their technical skills and tactical awareness.

Alongside this practical skills development, students will study academic programmes from Level 1 to Level 3 (depending on previous qualifications and achievement). The qualifications you will gain are vital to any career path you may choose and for progression.

The Football Programme offers students the opportunity to progress towards employment in the sports industry, or towards further and higher education in sport, while reaching their potential in competitive football.
