There are many opportunities to have a career in sport for those students who are willing to work hard. By joining the NPL Football Academy you will be able to take the first steps to becoming a Physiotherapist, Coach, Manager, Teacher, Referee, Agent, Administrator etc.

On the football side whether in the professional game or as a semi-professional footballer in non-league, by being part of a club in the NPLFA you will have a foot in the door for that future career.​

Our pathway partners ‘Soccer Chance USA’ offer a chance to study, play and coach in America on a Sports Scholarship in the US College system.

The BTEC in Sport qualification that is on offer with the NPL Football Academy uses a UCAS points tariff to enable those who complete the qualification to progress to further education such as University.

Advice and guidance will be given throughout a students time on the course from both our education providers and the NPLFA to enable them to secure their preferred pathway once their time with ourselves is over.
