Creating and running your own football club can be a profitable business, but it also comes with many varied challenges. In this 30 hour module learners put themselves in the boots of the manager of their own football club and take on the complex problem solving that comes with it. Safe in the support of a small learning team, students will use mathematical literacy to control a budget and their creative writing skills to keep their club in the papers. They will also develop their own branded merchandise, commission a mural and code a game to bring new fans on board. Gaining insights into the world’s most popular game on the way, students will expand their knowledge of the unique range of skills it takes to manage a business.
