The Wycombe Wanderers Football & Education Academy enables learners to study the new specification Level 2 and 3 BTEC diploma’s in Sport over a period of two years. Additionally, learners have the option to progress to a third programme studying a Level 3 BTEC Subsidiary Diploma in Sports and Exercise Sciences. This allows learners to continue their football development and incorporates a work experience placement.
While the programme is primarily focused on helping prepare students for moving into employment or further study by providing valuable qualifications, the time spent at the academy also involves football training and/or matches over 5 days per week. Students who fail to achieve a 4 or above in their GCSE English and/or Maths will have the opportunity to resit with us as part of their programme of study.
The programme is open to males aged 16-19 years old who, in addition to their studies, represent Wycombe Wanderers FC playing football in a competitive Under 19 National Football Youth League. Additional friendlies against other programmes and professional clubs are held throughout the season.
Based at a fantastic venue in Stokenchurch near High Wycombe (which boasts numerous learning suites, an indoor gym, an indoor sports hall, plus outdoor pitches) the programmes academic studies are delivered by our primary partner “ProCo”. The curriculum is delivered using an exciting education management system that allows learners to complete their study programme online. Learners study online resources, complete and submit assignments remotely, and the system provides the opportunity for parents to check their son’s progress whenever they wish.
Taught both practically and theoretically, the programme allows development of knowledge in a range of sports topics whilst also developing both football coaching and playing skills. Learners complete their FA Level 1 Award in Coaching Football which is supported by a work experience placement. The training schedule is then complemented by an extensive games programme against other teams playing in the National Football Youth League.
Following successful completion of the programme, exit routes can include university, USA football scholarships, work with the WWFC community coaching programme or a career in the professional sport & leisure industry.
