Full time scholars have access to FA coaching and officiating courses at the Academy, giving them extra curricular qualifications to forge their own path into a career in sport.
Employment opportunities are also available for our full time scholars, including a variety of roles within Redditch United working as part of their community coaching and match day teams.
