NCC Education and Tottenham Hotspur Football Development Centre
After six successful years at the Epping Forest campus, the Tottenham Hotspur Football Development Centre programme will now be extended to New City College students at its Redbridge, Hackney and Tower Hamlets campuses.
The programme offers educational qualifications for male and female students aged between 16 and 19 who are studying one of the many Sport and Fitness courses at levels 1, 2 and 3.
Our Global Football Development team work to bring authentic coaching methods developed within the Club’s Academy, designed to help students reach their full potential. As part of the programme, the coaches monitor each player individually, giving them the opportunity to learn and develop their skills so they can play attacking football with the flair, fluidity and passion that are the hallmarks of the Club.
NCC launch Girls Football Development Centre
The 2021/22 season sees the launch of the brand-new Girls Development Centre delivered at NCC campuses by our coaches. The programme offers educational qualifications for female school leavers aged between 16 and 18.
Students can study one of the many Sport and Fitness courses at levels 1, 2, and 3, available at any of the New City College campuses located across London and Essex, alongside a full time football programme led by our FA and UEFA-qualified coaches.
Additionally, students on the programme will have access to fantastic favilities for training and matches, such as the Harlow Town FC Stadium (Epping Campus). Students/players train at the facilities up to three times per week, (subject to individual timetables and Maths/English lesson requirements) with weekly matches held at the venue every Wednesday throughout the season.
New Nike training wear and matchday kits are given to all students who have enrolled and have 100% attendance to both lessons and training – and they are also transported by the College to the training grounds.
This extension means that over 300 young sports men and women at the college will now benefit from professional training, sports industry preparation and work experience alongside a BTEC Diploma in Sport.
Paul Griffiths, Tottenham Hotspur Football Development Centre Programme Head Coach, said: "We've already seen great levels of talent and success in our NCC Epping Forest trainees. We're delighted that even more footballers across the New City College group will now be able to take part in the opportunities of the development programme.
Current student, Molly, had this to say about the programme: “The Tottenham Hotspur Development Centre has been a great opportunity for me. I have been able to work alongside professional coaches and gain valuable experience from them. I have also enjoyed being a part of the Coaching Excellence Centre as it has helped me develop and improve my coaching skills."
