Open evening for Girls Foundation Academy..

The Leeds United Foundation are set to hold an open evening for one of their education courses and young people interested in girls specific football training and education are being invited to attend.

Based at Sherburn High School, The Leeds United Foundation offers both football training and academic qualifications specifically for females aged between 16-19 years old.

The open evening is being held on Wednesday 15th November from 6pm - 8pm and will give prospective students the chance to talk to Leeds United Foundation staff about the course in more detail.

In conjunction with the Leeds United Girls Regional Talent Club, students can combine full-time study with a football training schedule and will get the chance to represent the Leeds United Foundation within a scheduled fixture programme. 

Each player is given the opportunity to achieve their ambitions both in the classroom and on the pitch, and will gain experience training on a brand new 3G pitch.

The two-year programme is made up of twelve hours of football and performance related units which will cover the theoretical side of football and sport, and nine hours of practical and training sessions per week plus game time.

The BTEC qualification is graded Distinction, Merit or Pass. The assessments will include assignments, case studies, project work, presentations, time constrained assessments and observations. The course will help students progress onto sports related higher education courses for example: coaching, PE teaching, physiotherapy, sports development, fitness Instructor and sport business.
