FEEDBACK FROM STAFF
“‘Careers in Football’ links perfectly with our Football Futures programme and it has been a really valuable exercise to give the young people we work with an insight into the different options for them in terms of pursuing a career in football. Many of them
have learned more about careers they may have never
considered in the past and now have a plan of action to try and go out and get the career they want. We would recommend ‘Careers in Football’ as an important part of the support offered to young people interested in football.”
“Careersinfootball.com were superb in helping deliver a workshop around careers in sport to our football futures students. The benefit of the workshop to those currently volunteering was great, giving them information around what
they need to have/do to be part of the football/Sports industry. I know our leaders went away with clear visions of what they needed to do moving forward to reach their goal after the
“The session was well staged, with plenty of practical activities designed to prompt players to envisage what kind of role they would be successful in after their playing career is over. Toby displayed excellent knowledge of the sports industry, and was in tune with the skills that players would gain as Apprentice Footballers. We wouldcertainly recommend the session to other clubs that are looking to provide positive destinations for all of their players.”

"Careersinfootball.com were exceptionally professional in going about their delivery of workshops to our third year Physical and Sport Education students. I was particularly impressed with their interpersonal skills and ability to empathise with our students. I hope that we can build a lasting professional relationship for the benefit of our students' future careers in sport."

“Thank you for coming in to the training ground to deliver the careers talk to our young scholars. The session was well organised and the interactive tasks meant that the lads were well engaged throughout the session. Of particular interest was the wide range of available opportunities that would allow them to remain involved in sport, and the practical steps they would need to take in order to achieve a career in that field. It was also useful for me from the perspective that the content covered aspects of the NVQ qualification that the lads follow as part of their AASE programme. It was a real triumph of achievement through active learning!”
WATFORD FC ACADEMY
“The Careersinfootball.com careers session was conducted with players and parents of the U17s Girls’ Centre of Excellence age group at Chelsea FC. Using a workshop format, the staff delivered a highly informative workshop and were clearly knowledgeable of multiple career paths within sport. Furthermore, they were able to translate these message clearly and concisely to the players involved. The information provided within the workshop was presented visually, being easy to follow and professionally presented. The interactive nature of the workshop provided players with an opportunity to discuss various career paths independently and in collaboration with the Careersinfootball.com staff. I would encourage the inclusion of the Careersinfootball.com careers workshop to any Girls’ Centre of Excellence programs wishing to provide players with future direction and career advice as part of their long term development”.
