Hadlow College Partners with Charlton Athletic

Posted on 28th May 2014 in Sport & Outdoor Activities, General

Charlton Athletic Community TrustFrom September 2014, Hadlow College will be partnering with Charlton Athletic Community Trust to deliver a post-16 Football Academy programme at their campus near Tonbridge, Kent.

Building on the already successful programme which Hadlow College initially launched with Tonbridge Angels Football Club, this new venture will offer students greater links with many semi-professional clubs for football placements and enhanced football development opportunities.  Students will also gain an opportunity to attend first team matches and, through the links with a Championship Club, have the opportunity to attend training sessions at Charlton Athletic.

Students within the Academy will be trained by UEFA B football coaches and have the chance to possibly gain their own Level 1 and Level 2 football coaching qualifications throughout the duration of the course.  For the students that complete these, there will be – as part of the Charlton Athletic Community Trust – opportunities for volunteering and paid employment.  This will give the students those vital employability skills to differentiate them in the job market once their course has finished.

All of this is delivered alongside the qualification in Sport which students will study as part of their educational programme.

To take advantage of this excellent opportunity, come along to our next Open Event on 8th June 2014.  For more information, or to book yourself on to this event, please e-mail our Admissions Office.
