DUCHY College and Football League division one side Plymouth Argyle are holding a trial day for potential recruits on their Football Education Programme.
The event will be held at Duchy College, Stoke Climsland on Monday, August 21 between 10am and 1pm.
The Football Education Programme, based at the college, covers all aspects of the professional game from nutrition and fitness to injury analysis and coaching. The students also receive training sessions from a Plymouth Argyle coach and are able to further develop their skills by undertaking work experience at Argyle’s Home Park stadium. Those who complete the course could progress into a number of key areas in sport and fitness to include coaching, nutrition, injury prevention, teaching or further study.
Team lead for sport and outdoor adventure at Duchy College, Darren Evans, said the programme — which is in its second year — ‘has proven to be a very popular course for learners who not only love football but want to develop their future career options when pursuing University courses or seeking employability in the sports industry.’
