Study & Play: Start your football career with our Football & Education Programmes

22 August 2019

Are you aged 15-16 and dreaming about a career in sport? You could make your dreams a reality by applying for our Football & Education Programmes.

Spaces are still available to start this September for 16-year olds who have just finished Year 11.

The Port Vale Football & Education Programme offers three routes for young people wanting to begin a career in sport:

  • Mens 11v11 Squad
  • Ladies 11v11 Squad
  • Futsal Squad

Those registered to the Programme will study a BTEC Level 3 course in Sport, alongside additional football related qualifications, while training up to four times a week with UEFA qualified coaches and representing Port Vale every week against other professional clubs.

Every student will receive a full training kit and match day tracksuit, plus tickets to every Port Vale home league game.

Completing the course opens up a range of options for a career in football, including work experience/placement opportunities at Port Vale, access to university courses and the chance of earning a semi-professional or professional contract or scholarship.

If you’ve just finished Year 11 and would like to find out more, or you’re about to start Year 11 and would like to register your interest, contact the Port Vale Foundation:

The Port Vale Foundation wish all young Valiants collecting their GCSE results on Thursday the best of luck!
