Dan joined the Brighter Futures Bedworth United Programme in September 2021 and is completing a 2-year study programme, hoping to achieve a L3 Extended Diploma in Sport, Coaching and Development. Dan has worked really hard and shown an excellent level of commitment to continue his studies. He has progressed to become an elite player within our academy and has recently been selected to trial at Burton Albion FC in League 1.
Dan has a back-up contingency plan, so that if he did not make it as a professional footballer, he is looking to progress to university and work full time in professional sport. The study programme has helped Dan to develop both his practical ability and his theoretic work, having shown an excellent ability to reflect, evaluate and critically analyse his sports coaching sessions. Dan has also completed numerous Honour Awards, learning about all aspects of British Values, Prevent, Online Safety, Employment CVs and applications forms, Healthy Eating, Alcohol and Drug Abuse, Equality and Diversity.
