Alton College & Chelsea Football Club Foundation

As part of our partnership with Chelsea Football Club Foundation (CFCF), coaches have been delivering 90 minutes per week of football / fitness training to our students with special educational needs. This is the first part of our new offering to students in conjunction with CFCF which started in September 2018. SEND students enjoy sessions from qualified Chelsea FC approved coaches and as well as learning football skills, they are improving their fitness and learning teamwork skills.

In addition to the work that has already begun with our Foundation Learning students, we are launching the Chelsea Football Club/Alton College Football Academy from September 2019 and also will be delivering three bespoke progression routes for students in Year 10/11 through College and beyond. These unique sports pathways include activities that students can engage with prior to enrolling at Alton College, a list of available and most suitable courses for students whilst at College and details of enrichments and support available to progress to after College. The pathways starting in September 2019 are 

  • Sports Excellence
  • Sports and STEM
  • Business and Marketing in Sport

More information about each pathway and to sign up for the Football Academy can be found here.
