  Phil Roscoe is our head of Education and Welfare and is responsible for the pastoral care and mentoring of all our registered Academy players.

  He boasts an extensive background in education having lectured in sport, development and fitness at a further education college in Merseyside for six years prior to his appointment.

  Phil has also been coaching within Academy youth football for over 12 years, spending the last five at Liverpools academy on a part-time basis, and helping to develop various age groups, with the most recent being lead coach of the under 16s last season.

  Here he explains the nature of his position within the Kirkby-base.

  Within the academy we provide a very structured and focussed programme which not only gives players the best chance possible to progress within the football industry but also educationally as individuals.

  "This is achieved on a post-16 level by providing the players with an opportunity to develop academically and vocationally by undertaking educational programmes such as A level, BTEC, NVQ and key skills.

  "The players will also take part in external qualifications such as their F.A Level 2 coaching award which will provide a mechanism for the players to improve their individual skills such as communication, organisation and leadership.

  "Within the nine-16 age group programme I monitor the welfare and educational progression of each boy through regular correspondence with their schools, parents and age-group coaches. This excellent and continually developing relationship allows each registered player at our academy the best chance to progress as a player and improve within their schooling.

  "This also allows the players from a very early age to identify the expected educational and behavioural traits needed to develop as a Liverpool player and achieve their maximum potential within their school environment."
