Opportunity to Tender: research brief for Women’s Football Apprentices

After a successful pilot year, the FA/AoC Sport Women & Girls’ Football Apprentice programme has been rolled out to involve 19 colleges, 17 apprentices and four interns.

The project aims to create a workforce solution to driving participation in girls’ and women’s football both in the FE colleges and their local community, with a specific aim to increase the number of BAME participants.

We are now looking for an organisation to conduct research to:

  • Assess the impact of apprentices/interns on increased participation in the college within the female student population both within the college and surrounding community.
  • Establish the extent to which the apprentice programme is a successful solution to developing the female football workforce of the future.

 The research aims to understand whether future investment is worthwhile and to establish whether a dedicated Women’s Football Apprentice within College Grassroots Hubs is an effective solution.
