“CV Academy is a fantastic platform for coaches to learn and develop. The content is incredibly useful, giving real insights into the way coaches coach. Whether you are coaching at grassroots level or in the professional game, CV Academy is definitely a resource I would recommend to coaches.”
Director of Football Development & Operations, Chelsea
“The Coaches’ Voice offers a great insight for all our coaches throughout the Academy. With a variety of coaching sessions, interviews and stories from prominent figures in the game, it is an essential part of any coach’s development. The debate it stimulates within our Academy is important to us; as the football world continues to progress, we want to be at the forefront. The Coaches' Voice certainly helps with this; I would recommend to any coach.”
Head of Football Development, Norwich City
“The Coaches’ Voice offers a unique insight into the world of both coaching and development. While the high level of production is fantastic, what really sets it apart is that the content is driven by coaches for coaches.”
Academy Manager, Liverpool
“I enjoyed the masterclass process – it was very professional and well organised, involving trustworthy, reliable football people with a genuine enthusiasm to provide a platform for coaches to share their experiences with each other. It’s a great idea.”
Assistant Manager, England
“I have loved The Coaches’ Voice from day one. Very professionally put together, fantastic content and top coaches from around the world sharing their experiences. A great platform for any coach, young or old, wanting to learn about all aspects of the game.”
“The Coaches’ Voice are football people. They love football, they understand football and they know how to make good football content.”
“I really think the structure and format that The Coaches’ Voice offers is one of few that lets you see the development of managers’ opinions, making it an important reference for anyone keen on understanding things from the coaches’ perspectives. The contribution of this platform is very interesting. It is something I’ve felt every time I’ve had the opportunity to be interviewed by them.”
“It’s a platform that invites you to get to know the protagonists, from their tactical vision to their personal side. It lets others understand the philosophy of the game and the work of each manager through their content.”
Manager, Ecuador Women, 2014-2017
“Despite featuring on CV Academy, the content has been inspiring yet educational for me. As coaches, we can often become too caught up in our own coaching style and methodology, so the ability to be able to draw from the knowledge and experiences of others has been fantastic. CV Academy is a powerful library of coach education that should not be taken for granted. Simply, it’s every coaches dream!”
Academy Coach, Chelsea
“The Coaches’ Voice is a great platform that allows coaches to share their experiences with the wider coaching community. For me personally, it’s been a privilege to have the opportunity to do this and work with enthusiastic people who genuinely care about the game. It’s a great platform for knowledge sharing.”
Former Manager, Brighton & Hove Albion Women
“CV Academy is a great learning platform for our students on all of our coaching programmes, as it supplements the education they receive at UCFB. One of the key aspects of the platform is that it covers all levels and ages of the game, supporting coaches with players from Under-8 up to Under-18 and beyond.”
Programme Lead, Football Coaching & Management, UCFB, Wembley
“I found CV Academy a very useful and interesting platform for coaches at any level, with the option to observe and analyse related sessions on specific topics or find interesting exercises to practise with. Also, thanks to sections such as The Journey or Masterclass, it has allowed me to approach a different way of thinking from other coaches and make me think about the game in new ways.”
Head Coach, Biggleswade United
“I have been using the CV Academy platform actively since October 2019. As a coach, it gives me inspiration, but I am also using it for my own training plans and it helps a lot. The Coaching Courses and CV Live sections really improve my vision. In addition to quality content, the graphics, visual interface and ease of use are on the highest level. CV Academy is a school that, as a coach, you would never want to end.”
Under-17 Head Coach, Turkey Women
