The Melbourne City College of Football is an innovative program that is designed to engage those with a passion for combining football and education at John Fawkner College.
The curriculum is designed to complement and not impact their core studies whilst allowing them to excel in their area of passion. Students will participate in mainstream English, Mathematics, Humanities, Science, Physical Education, Italian/Literacy (all themed towards sport) and Certificate studies in VET Sport and Recreation (Certificate II and III). At the end of year 10, students will be counselled to complete a range of subjects across the flexible VCE, VCAL and VET program offered at John Fawkner College. Subjects available include Physical Education, Health and Human Development, Sport and Recreation, Outdoor Ed and studies in a host of Humanities, Arts and Science subjects.
Students are encouraged and supported to maintain a balanced lifestyle between their studies and football, with measures in place to ensure they are accountable for not losing motivation in the classroom.
