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.

Your one-year BTEC Subsidiary Diploma in Sport at Level 3 will be followed by the one-year BTEC Extended Diploma. These qualifications are equivalent to A Levels, so you'll finish your studies ready to head to university if you want.

  • 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 Football Conference Youth Alliance - the highest youth league outside professional academies
  • Training four times a week and playing at one of our four Academy teams on Wednesdays
  • Youth team under-18s trials and first-team development games
  • Representing the England College National team
  • Study at Level 2/3 and national sports courses with a chance to progress to University
  • A chance to participate in our annual residential Seville FC (Spain) tour
  • The chance to gain an American Football scholarship
