The Academy was established in 2013 in order to recognise those students with suitable experience/qualifications to work on the extensive schools programme that is operated throughout the city.
In 2014/15 the academy delivered on average 52 school sessions a week to over 600 school pupils across 35 different schools.
Being part of the Academy provides individuals with different experiences across varying age groups and sports/disciplines. Developing core skills such as communication, planning, group management, teamwork to name but a few. These skills along with additional coaching and CPD opportunities are what help individuals stand out when applying for positions pre and post-graduation.
