TESTIMONIALS

  • “VLUK has recently set up a partnership with Pro Football Academies UK. As Vice-Principal, it has been a pleasure to work in close partnership with the site on this exceptional and exciting Football & Education Scholarship Programme. The facilities are fantastic. With their combination of regular training and expertise coaching, the PFAUK programme gives all its young football scholars the best chance of becoming the best players they can be.  This is backed up by a wonderful education programme,that is delivered by an inspiring Tutor who challenges his learners to achieve aspirational grades for when they enter the world of work or Higher Education, either here or abroad. It is an absolute pleasure to work the PFAUK staff and hopefully this is a working relationship that will continue to grow in the years ahead. I am in no doubt PFAUK will be a huge success in the classroom and on the pitch for many years to come.   This year three PFAUK first year scholars have been selected to for the Virtual Learning UK Representative Elite squad, who will represent Great Britain in the China (Shanghai) Invitational Youth Football Tournament in July”
