Partnership to host Elite Development Programme to give youngsters chance to gain qualifications

Stevenage FC have teamed up with Marriotts School to host their Elite Development Programme - Boro’s premier programme for (EDP) young footballers who want to make a career out of the sport.

The EDP will give teenagers the chance to gain qualifications to work in the sports industry, train and compete in a professional football environment while gaining important qualifications.

As well as gaining an excellent footballing education, the programme will also give the participants a BTEC Level 3 extended diploma in sport – a qualification that will help you get into university. FA coaching qualifications will also be earned.

Trials have been scheduled for April 19, May 17 and June 21 at Marriotts school.
