FootballCV Academy Sweden Work Placement Project
Start date: 01 Jul 2016,
End date: 30 Jun 2017
The FootballCV Academy Work Placement Project will enable fourteen students aged between 17 to 19 years old who are currently enrolled on a full time football training and educational program, to travel to Sweden and spend two weeks on work placement at Lindsdals IF, a professional football club based in Kalmar. The project will be overseen by the FootballCV Academy in conjunction with Lindsdals IF. Prior to the students travelling to Sweden, each participant will receive Swedish lessons, giving them a basic understanding of the language and enhancing their time in Sweden. The projects aims for each participant to learn, develop and understand new technical skills and tactical awareness, specific to European football that they would not gain here in England. This will be enabled through practical training sessions held by the professional coaching staff of Lindsdals IF, at the clubs main stadium and training ground complex. Participants will also take part in strength and conditioning sessions; receive nutritional seminars and lifestyle advice of a professional sportsman from Lindsdals IF players and staff. The project will give all participants a cultural experience (supported by linguistic training) and gain underpinning knowledge in key areas of their BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (Development, Coaching and Fitness), which they are currently undertaking, further enhancing the qualification. The project will also open up potential future employment opportunities for participants at Lindsdals IF and other Swedish clubs, should they demonstrate the required skill level and set, something which could have a huge impact on their future sporting career.
