Post 16 Academies

The Post-16 Academy is aimed at boys or girls aged 16-18 who are interested in combining school work with the life of a professional footballer. It is a two-year, full-time education and football development programme delivered in partnership with professional and non-league football clubs.

The BTEC based education programme is delivered by our partners SCL, an approved BTEC Centre. Charlton Athletic Community Trust will deliver the football training.

Open to talented footballers aged between 16-18 years, the academy programme is a must for any football enthusiast. Playing trials are held as places are offered based on playing ability with both the football and educational element of the academy being fully funded with a subsidised cost for purchasing training kit.

CACT’s football courses have brought through 29 players who have gone on to play professionally.

Trials for the next intake, which start in September 2018, will take place at four venues across the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
