Yeovil College in Partnership with Yeovil Town Football Club excited about new intake on Elite Player Development Programme
Following a record year for recruitment for Yeovil College’s Elite Player Development Programme (EPDP), Yeovil College along with partners Yeovil Town Football Club are celebrating recruiting some very exciting talent on the programme.
Yeovil College’s Elite Player Development Programme is designed to support talented and aspiring young footballers to develop their footballing ability by providing a high level of coaching as part of the YTFC Academy programme. Students study towards a BTEC Level 3 Sport in Performance and Excellence alongside working on their footballing careers. Students train at Yeovil Town Football Club two days per week and study 2 days per week at the college with fixtures against the highest level of opponents throughout the year in England Colleges FA Premier League. Many players have the option to train with the Yeovil Town Football Club Scholars and have the opportunity to join the Yeovil Town Football Club Scholars squad for matches. The programme has seen many successes over the years with students going on to gain scholarships at Universities in the USA and of course sign contracts with professional teams. The course enables students to go on to study degree courses in the UK, apprenticeships in a sport related subject and a host of full-time careers.
Warren Aplin, Study Programme Manager for the EPDP, said: “It is great to see so many talented young footballers taking the opportunity to join the Elite Player Development Programme, staff at both Yeovil College and Yeovil Town FC are excited to see the development our intake of year one students make over the next two years with us. The partnership between Yeovil College and YTFC continues to go from strength to strength as we expand our capabilities to provide a football and educational experience that is second to none.”
