There can be few better places to turn than FM Sports Academies if you want to encourage young sporting talents without letting them neglect their studies either! Based in France, England and Spain, FM Sports Academies’ sports and languages and sports and studies programmes are designed for students of all ages.
Top-quality coaches, sports physicians, physical trainers and sports psychologists have been an integral part of the success of these courses over the last 25 years. The quality of the teaching and the learning environments at establishments such as Birkdale School and Hillsborough College in the Sheffield area is another crucial factor.
Some students are principally interested in improving their English, but for those who already have a higher standard of English, other windows open up. For anyone who sees themselves coaching sport for a living, the BTEC sports coaching in England programme could be a good place to start.
This qualification would enable you to get onto a university-level course and covers both technical and tactical aspects of sport, nutrition, coaching, fitness testing, exercise and more! The programme includes regular English tuition. Other BTEC qualifications are also available, notably the International Foundation Diploma in Business, which is aimed at budding footballers.
