The academy plays a prominent role in the women's and girls' set-up at the club, bridging the gap between the Regional Talent Club and the senior set-up.
The football specific part of the programme takes place at the club’s new state-of-the-art training ground in Lancing, while the education is delivered by Worthing College, who will offer a wide range of BTEC and A-Level qualifications. This academic pathway will fit around the training schedule, offering the best possible combination of a joint football and education programme.
Brighton & Hove Albion Regional Talent Club
Brighton & Hove Albion are delighted to confirm they have been awarded tier 1 status in the FA’s new Regional Talent Club (RTC) programme.
The RTCs have replaced the former centre of excellence model and are designed to offer enhanced coaching and support to elite female players through the FA Girl’s England Talent Pathway.
The decision is a real coup for the club, the equivalent to the boys’ academy receiving category one status in the Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP) and comes after a gruelling six-month application process.
