Steven Gerrard Academy have teamed up with LLS to create a dream sixth-form sport and football course for young people aged 16 to 19 in the Canary Islands.

Launching in Tenerife in September 2021, the course has been designed for young people who have aspirations of becoming professional athletes, coaches, teachers, physiotherapists, and sports scientists, plus much more.


Successful applicants will study full-time for two years and will graduate with a 2-year education and sports programme. The course is the equivalent to 3 A-Levels and the Spanish Baccalaureate.

The qualification is taught in an innovative way which sees learners take classroom learning into practical settings, including weekly work experience in schools and with sports clubs in the local community.

Teaching and learning will take place at the world-renowned ‘Tenerife Top Training’ sports facility. This Olympic standard venue is an elite setting and inspiring environment to learn about units such as Anatomy and Physiology, Sport and Business, Practical Coaching and Sports Marketing and Media.

Exclusive Opportunities

After ten years of successful delivery in the UK and more recently the Middle East, this established sixth-form programme delivers incredible life-changing opportunities for the young people who successfully apply.

By securing a place with LLS and Steven Gerrard Academy, students in Tenerife become members of our global community and, with that, have exclusive access to our professional network and the unique opportunities that it provides.

Students benefit from monthly inspirational question and answer sessions with professionals from the world of sport and they will be given opportunities to apply for overseas learning experiences as part of their time on course.


Upon completion of the two-year course, graduates will have a choice of opportunities and our team are on hand to support young people with applying for:

  • University
  • Athlete Scholarships (UK & USA)

  • Paid Global Coaching
