St-Eds, in partnership with Norwich Community Sports Foundation, are pleased to provide a bespoke learning environment for students wishing to further their education. Students will receive a Level 1 in Sports and Active Leisure.

This comprehensive sports coaching programme allows for team and individual development through a series of technical and tactical training sessions.

Players take part in a series of Futsal activities to support their overall technical development and mobility.

They also receive support from the Foundation’s Coach Development Team as they work towards the FA Coaching Qualifications.

The programme is designed to compliment existing under-18 football, to ensure that players are supported in their transition into the next stages of their sports journey.

An alternative provision for 14-16 year olds, as well as study programmes for 16-18 year olds, are also available. These combine both sports and education elements with the aim of promoting personal progression both on and off the field.
