About Football School

PGL’s Football School programme combines expert football coaching sessions with English language learning and excursions to two of England's Premier League football grounds. It’s an ideal opportunity for students to learn English in different environments and improve their football skills.

Each programme lasts for two weeks (although students can stay for just one week). Each week, qualified FA football coaches provide 12 hours of coaching combined with 15 hours of English language learning, taught by CELTA qualified teachers.

Football coaching

Each week contains 12 hours of football coaching from FA qualified coaches. The coaching programme is designed to provide a balance between football training, education and recreation and includes:

  • Individual techniques
  • Technical circuits
  • Goalkeeping
  • Free kicks & corners
  • Dribbling & dummies
  • Fair play

Practice matches, tests and daily briefings are interspersed with coaching sessions to provide a fully interactive course.

Excursions

To complement your course there are two excursions each week:

  • A full-day excursion to Manchester with a visit to Old Trafford football stadium and museum (home to Manchester United) and shopping at Salford Quays
  • A half-day visit to Anfield stadium, home to Liverpool Football Club

English language programme

  • PGL English Language programmes focus on improving speaking and listening, combined with written work to keep a record of students’ achievement
  • Students receive 15 hours of teaching each week in enjoyable, interactive classes with no more than 12 students per class
  • Courses are taught at four levels, with students assessed on arrival and streamed into classes according to ability
  • Each student receives a specially designed workbook containing modules and exercises. A certificate of achievement is presented to each student at the end of the course
