We believe it is vital on our Level 2 and above, to have industry experts help deliver the course, those that are currently with clubs, shedding light on current best practice, coupled with our expert tutors.

Series: Women’s Football

Topic: Breaking Down Barriers

As we come to the end of the Women in football series, this webinar will look at ways in which barriers for women can be broken down in sport but also more generally within the world of football.  Understanding the different barriers that can sometimes halt progression in the game is the first step to being able to overcome those barriers and increase your chances of breaking into the industry and making a significant contribution within the world of football.  The conclusion of this webinar will lead us nicely into the August webinar which is focussed on breaking into the sector.
