WHAT DO OUR LEARNERS SAY...
"The A2B Academy offered a fantastic opportunity to study my Level 3 and progress within Football. Through the support, and unique links of the academy I got the opportunity to trial at Premier League club Huddersfield Town FC and from that trial I have been invited back for a longer period and to play in a competitive fixture which is a dream come true. At the same time if the Football does not work out then thanks to A2B, I will always have my education to fall back on”.
“I chose to attend this academy as I wanted to continue my education with the focus specifically on sports, whilst at the same time developing my football ability. Therefore the practical elements of the course really appealed to me, as there is a mixture of training and lessons. In terms of my future I am working towards becoming a professional footballer, but careers in coaching and scouting also appeal to me”.
