The Chelsea FC Foundation Female College Programme Team (U19s) are currently in the stages of recruiting for the 2021/22 year which will be based at Blenheim High School, Epsom.
The Sixth Form Football Academy allows girls aged 16-18 to benefit from the unique opportunity of having an academic-led post-16 education and being able to gain A-Level qualifications alongside a full programme of professional football coaching.
All training will be timetabled into the school day so girls can still represent their clubs on the weekend.
The benefits to working with Chelsea FC range from some training sessions and matches being played at their world class Cobham training facility to the exit routes ranging from coaching with Chelsea FC Foundation, going to work at the foundation in a non-coaching role or attending a US college programme. The girls could also take an academic pathway and use their sixth form qualifications to take a place at university.
Their next trails are due to take place on Monday 21st December at Blenheim High School from 10:00-11:30.
