The Foundation Degree Community Football Coaching and Development will be based within your football club, Grimsby Town, and lectures, seminars and tutorials will be delivered on-site and via the provided material.

Our football coaching course allows students to study all sub-disciplines of coaching and gain valuable industry-recognised qualifications. The course will teach you aspects of generic children and youth coaching, football coaching, football development, social inclusion, and sports management skills.
