We’re extremely pleased and excited to announce our new partnership with the Harriers Academy and the take over of the Football Education and Coaching Programme from BMet.

Firstly, and most importantly, we want to reassure all applicants that: YOUR PLACE AT THE ACADEMY IS SAFE. There is no need to reapply.

 

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

“From September, Kidderminster College will lead on the delivery of all courses run at CoSE.  Arrangements for the delivery of the University of Worcester’s Foundation Degree in Football Business Management and Coaching is subject to ongoing discussion.

In addition, BMet has sold the land and building that CoSE sits on to Kidderminster Harriers – the football club that sponsors the centre of sporting excellence. “
