Football Coaching student secures 3 year degree scholarship with City

6 July 2021

Sport student Max Harvey has been awarded City in the Community's first ever full degree scholarship.

Max has recently completed his two year course in Football Coaching at Ashton Sixth Form College, and previously studied at West Hill School. The course is a full-time vocational course in Sports Coaching and Development, run in partnership with Manchester City's City in the Community.

The level 3 course suits those students wanting to gain a career in the sport and active leisure sector as sports coaches, instructors and leaders who have a real passion for football. They cover topics including Health, Wellbeing and Sport, Nutrition, Sports Psychology and more.

Max will now progress on to Manchester City Community's Football Coaching degree. The 3 year degree programme (BSc Honours), will be delivered at the Etihad, in collaboration with Manchester Metropolitan University. He is one of two recipients to receive the scholarship, fully funded by Manchester City. 

Vicky Clough, Head of Sport and Public Services at Ashton said, 

"Max stood out right from the start, his academic ability paired with his footballing ability made him someone the other students looked up to.  Not only a leader on the pitch but a support to other students in the classroom.

When Max told me he was applying for the scholarship I just knew he would get it because his attitude and his approach to his future is mind blowing. We are so proud of him."
