Learners can also have the opportunity if required to enhance their Maths & English skills, including re-sitting their GCSE’s.
Through weekly enrichment hours, learners gain relevant industry experiences and personal development skills that provides them with an enriched Curriculum Vitae to support their future careers, and progression onto university. U.S Scholarships, apprenticeships or employment.
On the pitch, learners will receive nine hours per week of football development through our UEFA qualified coaches using the fantastic 3G facilities for training, with competitive matches taking place on the ‘Field of Dreams’ grass pitch.

OPEN EVENTS & EXPERIENCE SESSIONS
As part of our application process, we invite prospects to attend our many ‘Open Events’ or ‘Experience Sessions’ planned throughout the year. These sessions are designed to meet the team, take part in football and academic sessions, and find out all about the Norwich Football Education Programme, and the pathways available.
These events also provide the opportunity to have an informal one-to-one meeting with one of our staff which will hopefully lead to you be presented with a conditional offer to join the Football Industry College for the next academic year.
COVID-19 UPDATE – All experience sessions and open events are currently suspended due to the current lockdown, but Virtual 1-2-1 session are available. In these unprecedented and uncertain times for learners following the cancellation of GCSE exams, we are currently offering automatic conditional offers to any learner who applies for one of our programmes.
