COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT SCHEME AS WELL

ALFRETON Town Football Club are pleased to announce the establishment of a brand new Football Academy and an additional Community Development Scheme.
Alfreton chairman Wayne Bradley has many long term aims for the football club, one of them being for the club to be more involved in the community, and for the community to be more involved in the club.
In conjunction and with Derby College, Alfreton Town intend to recruit young apprentices and offer them one-year paid apprenticeships, leading to formal qualifications in the activity and leisure fields.
As part of their training, the club intend to offer the community various sports-based activities, initially aimed at youngsters, and these will often be in conjunction with local schools.
The club are beginning this new scheme with a small number of apprentices so that their own staff can become qualified as NVQ assessors at the same time.
This stage should be concluded by mid-2012 and means that as an Accredited Centre, the club can accept a much larger intake of apprentices next September.
Anyone interested in the initial vacancies, should visit the National Apprenticeships website where they can apply, or contact Derby College direct.
The Academy is not limited to boys and football ability is not the only criteria on which applicants will be judged. It is a programme which is designed to help both those who wish to progress their involvement in football, and also other local youngsters who would like to benefit from extra qualifications which might help them to find employment at a later date.
Negotiations are still taking place with regards to staff appointments for the Academy and these will be announced as soon as possible.
Anyone requiring further details on either scheme, or persons who would like to help in some way, either by joining a scouting network, or have any other ideas, please contact Alfreton Town director John Glasby via email at
