None. The course is designed to be accessible to everybody. You will need to be CRB checked by FC United before you can do any work with children.

Venue: Troydale Tenants and Residents Association, Dolwen House: 5 Dolwen Walk, Newton Heath, Manchester M40 2FR.

Times: The course will start on Monday 8th October and will finish just before Christmas. It will run on Mondays and Thursdays, 10am to 2pm with a break for a meal. Addition activities will also be arranged from time to time. We will also run a community play scheme together during the October half-term holidays and some activities for children in the run-up to Christmas to give us a chance to use some of the skills we learn on the course.

Teacher: Robin Pye has worked as a teacher, specialising in teaching children who have difficulty with literacy and numeracy and have behaviour problems. He has also worked as a professional storyteller and now coordinates FC United’s community and education work. Other specialist teachers will be brought in to run certain sessions.
