Charlton Athletic Community Trust's (CACT) Post 16 Football and Education Academy is aimed at boys and girls aged 16-19 who are interested in combining their education with the life of a professional footballer.
CACT invite interested students in Year 11 to attend one of three open evenings at The Valley, to understand and discuss further the correct pathway for your further education.
CACT deliver a Level 2 in Sport (one year) and a Level 3 in Sport (two years) over a full time education and football development programme, delivered in partnership with our education provider SCL based at CAFC Training Ground.
Or if you would like to study A-Levels, CACT deliver a female and male academy programme at Bexleyheath Academy 6th form. Here you can study up to 3 A-Levels, while playing in an academy environment after school.
Both programmes compete within a competitive league and offer exit routes into professional and semi professional football, as well as educational opportunities into university, American sports scholarships and employment or apprenticeship opportunities.
