FOOTBALL WISE

A career in football takes a lot more than being a great player – and our course, delivered by a former pro-footballer-turned-coach and other sports coaches will reveal what you’ll need to know to navigate your career and manage your reputation.

FOOTBALL

Football is a world currency – spoken in every language. Forging a career in the sport requires not just skill in the game, but also many others too.
Footballers need to be team players, able to cope with pressure, grounded and know how to deal with the highs and lows their career will bring. The days when you’re winning, playing well, enjoying it and doing great things can be poles apart from the days when injury strikes, you’re on the bench and the sport you love is out of reach. From playing to behaviour on and off the field, reputation, the media and social media, our course covers it all.

Our course is written by and delivered by people who have lived, breathed, loved and lost in football. They’ve worn the strip, collected the caps and will share their past successes and failures with you.

It’s a game of two halves – and like football itself, everything around it can also be divided down the middle too. Match-fit or injured; happy in your career or unhappy; well-received by the media or not; squeaky clean on social media or caught out by a past post.

Our course will help you to see both sides and give you the advice from those who have experienced it, to make your way through the sport with your head held high.
