Girls Football Academy (AVFC/BMet)
The AVFC/ BMET Girls Football Academy brings together a link between these two dominant and successful youth development programmes. A key element of this programme, compared to many others, is that it is student centred; therefore students can select their own education programme from a range of courses at Sutton Coldfield College. Once a course has been chosen, players are then able to train and play for the football academy, competing weekly in Tier 1 of the West Midland Colleges football league.
All learners on the AVFC/BMET Girls Football Academy will enrol on a Programme of Study at Sutton Coldfield College. The course will be aligned to qualifications on entry. Alongside the selected academic course, learners will have 7 hours of football specific training and match play combined with Tutorial, Purposeful Work Experience (some of which can be completed with Aston Villa Ladies FC) and Maths* or English* if required.
