Earlier this month we were joined by Ben Beer of Challenger Sports who delivered a presentation to our students about coaching football over in the USA; Challenger Sports specialise in recruiting qualified UK coaches for football roles in the USA.

After the presentation Ben invited our students to take part in an assessment day, which would take place during the following weekend. The students who took part in the assessment day had to deliver a safe and effective 15-minute practical session, and present a 35-40 minute session plan, which had to be completed to FA Level 1 standard.

Congratulations to our BTEC Level 3 students, Joe Preston, Joseph Ryan (pictured below), and Brad Parry who all passed the assessments! All three have been selected to travel over to America to coach football during Summer 2016 – Well done lads!!
