Together with Charlton Athletic Community Trust, Hadlow College offers a post-16 Football Academy programme that combines a linkage with a Championship Football Club, with an excellent educational programme to benefit you - the student - in terms of your education, self-development and learning, both on and off the football field.
By joining this Academy, you will be trained by UEFA A qualified football coaches and have the opportunity to achieve the Level 1, and potentially the Level 2, football coaching qualifications. If you do complete these then, through Charlton Athletic Community Trust, you could benefit from paid employment and volunteering opportunities.
Gain access to a Championship club
Through our linkage with Charlton Athletic, you will be able to attend first team matches and first team training, as well as have access to the players. All of this will give you a chance to see what life is like at a top level, as well as have the opportunity to develop your own skills and experiences.
Study at an ‘outstanding’ college
Alongside your own development as a player, you will be learning at an Ofsted ‘outstanding’ college. Our sports qualifications are proven to give you the knowledge you need for a variety of roles within the sector, or into higher education. With the choice between either a Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 qualification we are confident that, whatever your academic ability, we have the right course for you.
