I feel great pride wearing the Burnley FC badge, knowing the children we work with can be inspired and relate to everything we do.
The children we work with have the biggest smiles on their faces, knowing they get to have somebody from Burnley FC in the Community deliver their lessons and inspire them.
Children fully engage with the lessons we deliver and love having Burnley FC in the Community apart of their school learning.
Josh has always had a passion for sports and football and was once an inspiring athlete. Unfortunately, medical conditions prevent Josh from being able to compete which is when he turned to coaching, something which he now loves.
Previously an International Football Development Coach, Josh is qualified in football, Multi-Sports and Goalkeeping coaching as well as holding an Extended Diploma in Schools Sports Coaching.
Being part of an organisation that supports their community gives josh a great sense of pride.
Wearing the Burnley badge in school feels like you can make such a difference to the way students learn.
You see so many pupils perk up when they see that you’re going to be teaching and it is usually followed by a flurry of questions about Burnley Football Club. It’s great as it engages the students before we even begin our delivery.
Aaron holds a degree in Sport Coaching and Development and also has qualifications in football, multi-skills, rugby and handball.
Working within football clubs and schools is familiar grounds to Aaron. His previous role was as a BTEC sports tutor where he delivered to 16-18-year-olds in the football clubs academy.
Growing up, sport was an escape for Aaron and this was something he always knew he wanted to go on to. He believes everyone should have the opportunity to access sport and its benefits.
