Which Wolves Value best suits you and your role?

Unity – A team player and always there to support others in the team as best that I can.

Weekly tasks overview

Every week is different in the academy but I work to deliver the BTEC element of the education program to the scholars as well as developing evidence to support their apprenticeship.

Along side this I help manage the individual education plans for all U18s including those playing with the U23s, whilst supporting the transition of U16 players into the U18 programme.

What do you most enjoy about working for the academy?

I love the environment and working to support players achieve their potential. Working with elite athletes is a unique environment that I thrive upon.

Future career and academic aspirations

In the future I would like to work towards a head of education role before progressing to work in a club support role with the Premier League or LFE.
