On 13th January, future® was invited to attend Level 7 Academy and UCFB’s launch event at Wembley Stadium in London as part of our partnership with Enfield Town Football Club.
Officially announcing their partnership, Level 7 academy invited their players, staff and partners to the iconic football stadium at Wembley to find out how their link with the University Campus of Football Business will provide their players with exit routes into a world-class university provision.
Level 7 academy provides a platform that creates a professional football and learning experience for young people that want to progress to the next level both on and off the pitch. Their bespoke programmes offer a full-time football education provision as well as experiences, opportunities and insight into a variety of industries. They pride themselves on being more than just a football programme, with their 2 – 3 year provision that helps shape the futures of student-athletes at the crucial age of 16-19 years old.
With a variety of pathways including scholarships to America, vocational courses with NCFE qualifications, internships and now university provisions, there are no better places to look to start to pursue a career in football and the professional sports industry.
The UCFB is the first higher education institution in the world dedicated to courses in football and the sports industry. With campuses across three cities in the UK, and hubs in the US, Canada and Australia, they offer once-in-a-lifetime learning and networking opportunities with the biggest organisations in world sport. With their newly announced Global Institute of Sport (GIS) allowing for expansion into Masters qualifications, UCFB offers current and aspiring sports professionals the chance to excel in the industry with a number of university degrees and specialist programmes spanning leadership, business, and coaching delivered by some of the most experienced and respected practitioners in world sport.
We are very excited to be working with Level 7 Academy and can’t wait to see where they expand their students’ horizons next.
