A course that is run in collaboration with the EFL Trust involving students who will study their Foundation Degree at their local EFL club.

Bobby is also module leader on 3 modules on the blended learning course:
Football Event Management (year 1)
Football in Society (year 2)
Sport Placement (year2)

Previously he held a role as Technical Demonstrator in football which entailed the delivery of the FAW C Certificate to all USW football students, using a blend of both theoretical and practical learning. Also encompassed in this role he provided feedback, mentored students, and assisted students with coursework, as well as practical assessments.
