We are delighted to announce that despite the difficult circumstances we all currently find ourselves in, we are still making exciting strides towards the next Academic year on our Full Time Football & Education Programme. With that in mind, we will be hosting a Virtual Open Event via Zoom on Wednesday 27th May, beginning at 6PM.


Our current scholars have been working hard over the past 8 weeks via Zoom to complete their outstanding units, and we are excited at the prospect of using the platform to bring the next cohort of scholars and applicants together.


During the Open Event, the newly rebranded ‘Academy’ shall be introduced, as well as life as a Scholar on our Full Time Programme, with the help of several scholars from our current cohort, who shall give their story on their time on our Programme, as well as answering any questions future scholars may have.


As well as this, future scholars will be introduced to the Programme staff who will work closely with them over the course of their stay:

  • Josh Wright- Lead Tutor and Head Coach
  • Wayne Mundon- Head of Academy
  • David Faulkner- General Manager
  • Rory Budge- Former Scholar & Academy Administrator
  • Dene Whittal-Williams- VLUK Site Leader
