We offer Sports Coaching placements in Crete, St Lucia and South Africa. We also offer Football Academy training in Seville.
Our work experience placements across Europe are carefully designed to teach your students valuable skills in their chosen areas of study. We work closely with our network of international partners to ensure that each placement is well structured, and that individuals are given all the support they need.
I developed skills such as confidence, leadership, problem solving, creativity and independence. I learnt to use my initiative and creativity to develop coaching sessions with limited resources.
Students might gain a range of experience and skills, including:
- Testing and tracking overall fitness and performance
- Learning and applying Spanish football theory and tactics
- Leading a sport and exercise activity
New for 2020, we will also be offering placements for Physical Education students in Rethymno, a seaside town on the Greek island of Crete.
Placements will be in local schools, working with Physical Education and Sports teachers. Students might gain a range of skills and experience, including:
- Supporting sport and exercise classes with local PE and Sports teachers
- Organising a school-based sporting event
- Evaluating pupils’ progress in sport and exercise activities
- Working with grass roots sports clubs
We will publish case studies of our first group in spring 2020.
“The overall experience brought my team together in a much closer way as we did what we all loved, but away from home together. My future plan is to go to university to study on a Strength and Conditioning course, to pursue my goal of becoming a professional trainer. I now know that I can live away from home and support myself.”
“Students trained at a local Spanish academy and learned different ways to play and understand football. The Spanish style is far more technical than the English style of play so the knowledge complemented the group’s skills set. The group spent time on both the pitch and in the classroom, and developed their teamwork and communication skills whilst becoming much closer friends.”
