ALTERNATE ROUTE FOR EDUCATION
ALTERNATE ROUTE FOR FOOTBALLERS
Students have to remain in education now until 18 years of age. A Levels are not always the route everyone wants to take. Our scholar programme is an alternative educational provision with a full time football training programme. It is aimed at the passionate footballer who might have missed out on a scholarship at a professional club. Just like A Levels however, our Scholar Programme can provide a route into higher education.

Maths & English GCSE for those who miss out on Grade 4
Functional skills level 2 in English and / or Maths

Professional attitude to development and learning how to win in a certain way.
Manchester Player Development has numerous contacts with professional and semi professional clubs and scouts across the North West. There will be many opportunities throughout the two years of study to play against and showcase talent to clubs. Players will also have the opportunity to take part in scholarship trials for colleges in the USA and to play in Australia, Spain and the USA.
During the scholarship the players will have the opportunity to complete the FA Level 1 and Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Football. There will also be opportunities of experience working with professional coaches in academy environments and work placements. Upon completion of the course players who are interested will be supported in beginning their coaching journey within the grassroots game, academy level and coaching abroad.
There will also be courses and support for students who are interested in Strength and Conditioning to go down this route as a coach.
Completion of the course is the equivalent to 3 A Levels. Students will be supported in applying for university places in the UK and USA.
We will prepare every student for employment with improving their communication and confidence on and off the pitch.
With our partners students will be supported to gain apprenticeships if this is their chosen path.
