The Programme

If you’re a budding footballer and are interested in any of the full-time Further or Higher Education courses offered at BMC, the Leicester City Women Football Club Education Programme could be the perfect opportunity for you!

Students who undertake this programme will train onsite at our 850 acre Brooksby Campus in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside, where they will benefit from a high quality, professional set-up which is also home to the Leicester Tigers and Mansfield Town FC Academies.

The aim of this programme is to support players in their development as elite players, helping them to develop lifelong skills both within the football arena and out. The programme will discover and develop the potential within each player through engagement with their technical, tactical, physical, mental and academic thought processes.
