A2 PE students recently visited Teesside University to attend a conference examining the contemporary challenges in football culture.
The conference brought together social science researchers and football practitioners to explore the contemporary challenges facing the people’s game and the opportunities to address these challenges. Guest speakers included the chief executive of ‘Show Racism the Red Card’, chief operating officer of Middlesbrough FC and a Premier League and Championship football agent.
The visit was a great opportunity for students to experience a university campus and the teaching style they would receive. The conference allowed students to gain an up to date understanding of issues faced in the industry which can be used within assessed work the classroom.
Tom Heselton, Hartlepool Sixth Form Tutor of Sport and PE said:
“The trip itself allowed students to gain an up to date idea of the contemporary issues faced in female football and the initiatives that being put in place to hopefully help deal with and overcome these problems.”
Teesside University also expressed their thanks:
“Thank you to all participating colleges. We hope you enjoyed the conference and gained valuable information from the guest speakers at the top of their field.”
