Success stories

“I chose my course because coaching interests me and I’ve always wanted to develop my coaching skills. I decided to come to BCA because I can study whilst playing football as part of the Maidenhead United Academy.

The aspect I like most about my course is the practical coaching and being able to reflect on my sessions and develop my skills which I know will help me achieve my future aspirations of becoming a coach at the highest level.”
