24 Jan JOIN OUR COMMUNITY AS A FOUNDATION DEGREE STUDENT FROM SEPTEMBER 2021!
If youâ€™re interested in a career in sport, one of the Huddersfield Town Foundationâ€™s two foundation level degree programmes may be just right for you!
From September 2021 the Town Foundation will deliver one course in Community Football Coaching & Development and another in Sports Coaching & Development.
Run in partnership with the University of South Wales and EFL Trust, both two-year courses give students a perfect mix of classroom-based learning and first-hand experience.
Students will be guided through the course content in a mixture of seminars and workshops at the John Smithâ€™s Stadium, with practical elements taking place at Leeds Road Sports Complex.
In addition to the course content, students will gain coaching experience on the Town Foundationâ€™s community programmes across Kirklees: including national programmes like Premier League Kicks, half-term sports camps and Mental Health Football sessions.
Furthermore, there will be the opportunity to undertake further sporting qualifications such as FA courses, First Aid courses and Health & Safety qualifications.
The courses are open to anybody of at least 18 years of age as of 1 September 2021, with the below entry requirements applicable to both.
On completion of the two-year foundation level course, students will have the opportunity to undertake a further year of study to turn their qualification into a full BSc (Honours) degree.
Potential career options are vast, with previous students taking on roles in PE teaching, sports and/or football coaching and Sports Management & Administration to name a few.
If you are interested in enrolling in either programme, the first step to take is to contact our staff team.
Expressions of interest for either the Community Football Coaching & Development or Sports Coaching route should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.orgÂ in the first instance.
They will then be able to give some more information on the course content before inviting you to attend a formal interview.
Once the interview process is complete, our team can support in applying to the programme, which is done via the University of South Walesâ€™ website.
There are limited places available on each course, so it is advised that you reach out as soon as possible.
