A New Element Of ‘TRANSFER’ That Football Academies Need To Embrace

Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation at Conference


The aim of this study was to explore the key transferable skills developed by individual players within academy football environments. The study focused on three distinctive phases (transitioning ‘in’, ‘through’ and ‘out’) and covered the two-year apprenticeship period where players exist as academy ‘scholars’. Accordingly, the research question emerged to propose a theoretical model that identifies the acquisition of key employability skills within elite professional football academies.
