Norwich City FC RDP & Impington Village College Team Up!

The Norwich City FC Regional Development Programme are delighted to announce a new Post 16 Football & Education partnership in Cambridgeshire.

From the summer of 2020, the RDP we will be working alongside ‘Sunday Times School of the Year for 2019’, Impington International College, to deliver a boys and a girls Post 16-19 Football & Education pathway allowing students to study a variety of courses whilst training & playing in a competitive football environment during the college day representing Norwich City FC.

The programme will guide students with exit routes into coaching, university & future careers whilst supporting both male and female participants with playing football at the highest level outside of the curriculum hours.

Alongside the course structure, further opportunities will be provided to the students based on real world topics such as mental health and well-being, employability and general health and safety discussions.

Therefore, upon leaving the course, students will have a full plethora of qualifications and knowledge to support them when they depart.

Ryan Kelsall, Principal of Impington Village College and International College commented on the partnership:

"Impington International College are thrilled to have signed an agreement to partner with Norwich City FC to further enhance their sports and education provision for 2020. Working alongside East Anglia’s largest Football Club as an integral part of their Regional Development Programme will ensure that students at the College get the highest quality footballing provision available as well as securing outstanding educational outcomes whilst attending the Sunday Times School of the Year for 2019. We look forward to significant success for the College and its students both on and off the pitch in 2020."
