ECFA FE Football Activators

English Colleges FA (as part of AoC Sport) is funding selected institutions across the Further Education Sector to employ volunteer FE Football Activators.

Up to 80 colleges (general further education colleges and sixth forms) have been selected nationally to recruit up to two Further Education Football Activators (FEFA's) to support the growth of new football participation.

This programme follows the successful pilot of the Lead2Football Activator Programme that has driven a growth in female participation at ages 14-19 over the past year. Our new FE Football Activator Programme will see double the investment per college, with £600 available to grow football participation and develop the activator workforce.

We have five colleges across Birmingham with activators

  • Solihull College
  • Walsall College
  • Stratford College
  • Wolverhampton College
  • Warwickshire College (Henley in Arden and Rugby sites)

If you would like to know more about the programme please contact your local Children & Young People Football Development Officer
