Job Description


This academic year saw the Southend United Community Foundation enter its 10th year of educating young people in the local community.

Southend United Community Foundation recognises the positive role it can play within the community, so it created a unique sporting academic programme, with the aim of tackling the education inequality that exists within the City of Southend. Through its continual growth in strength and capacity over the last 10 years, the education department has the appropriate support structure to enable learners to develop life skills, maximise career choices and opportunities through carefully designed qualifications, support and activities, no matter what their academic or practical level. Such a structure sees the department annually attract and accept a diverse range of students onto its exciting programmes, ranging from BTEC Level 2, BTEC Level 3 Diploma, BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma and Foundation Degree (USW).

Our Education Department consists of 4 Education tutors and alongside the curriculum staff are our UEFA qualified coaching team. The department has high expectations and standards, working tirelessly to develop and maximise success, both in the classroom and within the football programme. We are extremely proud of our success and achievements over the years.

With courses based at Garon Park Recreational Ground and other fit for purpose facilities, including our education provider Southend Adult Community College, the foundations culture of valuing education with practical industry experiences is bolstered by the learning environment and partnerships. Our unique educational courses offer students the opportunity to combine academic studies with a competitive sporting environment, enabling students to play and represent the football club in a national football league, the Community and Education Football Alliance (CEFA). Our teams play against professional clubs such as Chelsea, Fulham, Colchester United, Brentford, Norwich, Ipswich and many more. Our students, whilst in education, also have the opportunity to progress into our Elite Shadow Squad, Academy and / or advance into the first team, representing Southend United Football Club.

If you would like to be part of a successful education department, please read through the job description below, send your CV to Head of Education Andy Edmunds and request an application form. The deadline for completed applications is midday on the 28th June 2024.
