Teignmouth Community School and Exeter City Football Club have joined together to offer a Football/Education Development Programme. The programme provides students with a first class education that can lead on to university whilst also providing them with the chance to train and compete in a professional football environment.
All students enrolling on the Development Programme will be trained by Exeter City FC coaches. The development programme will see students learning from professionals, receiving up to six hours of weekly training and competing in the British Colleges football league against other professional football clubs including Chelsea, Tottenham and Birmingham City.
Exeter City coaching staff will continually monitor players on the Development Programme, with the best being given the opportunity to train with the Exeter City FC scholars. Students taking part in the course will wear Exeter City FC kit and the club will provide rewards for students such as match tickets. The Football Development Programme will be covered in Exeter City FC’s match day programmes and on the official club website.
Please note that players who enrol on the course will still be able to play for their club sides.
The full-time 2 year courses underpin playing performance with opportunities to access all levels of further education pathways, including BTEC Nationals, A-Levels or NVQ Level 2s. They will arm students with the skills to gain a place in university or employment in the sports and leisure industry. Students will also be equipped with the necessary tools to play an active role in their local communities by providing industry-recognized coaching and refereeing awards.
We at Teignmouth Community School and Exeter City FC are very proud of the Development Programme and feel that the benefits for successful candidates, both academic and practical, will be far reaching and long lasting.
