“I aim to become a big football star one day and my ambition is to play in a world cup tournament. I need to work and play very hard to get there and I know that will require putting in an enormous effort in training. This programme gives me very good exposure to the best coaches in the game and I have gained lots of insight into the sports industry itself.

“London South East Colleges provide me with good English, Maths and Communication knowledge as well as those all-important employability skills. My game is progressing well and I’m fitter and healthier than ever before. This programme is better than I expected and I would thoroughly recommend it to any other aspiring footballers.”



“My ambition is to become a great football player and reach the absolute pinnacle of my career. My first target is to play for the Crystal Palace first team and then see where my career takes me. I’ve wanted to be an international footballer since I was just seven years old and being on this programme gives me the confidence to go all the way.

“The great thing about the programme is that it gives you the opportunity to be spotted by talent scouts. It’s not just about playing football either. I have improved my English and Maths skills at the College and learnt a lot about the theoretical side of sports and fitness.”
