Head Coach/Lecturer - Football
We are seeking an inspirational and dedicated individual to deliver coaching to the Maidenhead United Football Academy, BCA and Development teams.
Under the direction of the Head of Football you will be responsible for the coaching provision across our five men’s teams and one ladies team. In this role, you will be responsible for assisting in the management of teams within our programme in a variety of leagues and cup competitions (including the FA Youth Cup). You will also help to monitor and maintain standards of coaching across the programme by designing and implementing a programme for the development of the academy players, not just technically and tactically, but also their personal, social and employability skills. This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced coach to work within a full-time programme with players aged 16–19. You will be required to have a UEFA B Licence (minimum) along with relevant experience coaching youth teams and/or adult players.
The candidate will be self-motivated and highly enthusiastic to teach on our BTEC Level 1 to Level 3 Sports programmes. Responsibilities will include planning, teaching and assessing full time students across our range of FE programmes. Course management responsibilities will also form part of the role, whereby you will inspire and motivate students to achieve their full potential both academically and practically.
The successful candidates should hold, or be willing to work towards, a teaching qualification and hold a sports related degree, although we would consider candidates with significant industry experience who are seeking to move into education. You will also demonstrate strong communication, organisational and administrative capabilities.
