Jordan Holmes, the former England soccer captain has teamed up with Kaplan International Colleges, a leading provider of English courses to be the new Social Program Manager at their language school in Manchester.
Jordan Holmes was a member of the Liverpool FC academy from age 12 – 18 and captained the England youth soccer team at under-16 and 17 level.
Mr. Holmes has a degree in Science and Football Studies from Liverpool John Moores University and recently earned a Masters’ degree in Liberal Arts from Lenoir Rhyne University in Hickory, North Carolina, USA, where he studied on a two year Soccer scholarship. He will now help develop the social program at Kaplan Manchester for international students taking a Kaplan English language course there.
He has an amazing track record in the world of soccer and has played with and against famous international players such as Theo Walcott, Micah Richards, Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverley and Aaron Lennon at many of the world’s most prestigious stadiums like Old Trafford, San Siro and Hampden Park.
Jordan thinks that his soccer experience will help him be a great team member at Kaplan as “being a captain also makes you a very outgoing person with good communication skills, which you need to be in my role a social program manager.”
Students who study at that school will enjoy a wide range of activities which will help them to make lifelong friends and have a great time. Some examples of social activities around include trips to art galleries, reggae nights out, curry nights, museum trips and much more. If you are a soccer fan, you should certainly take advantage of this opportunity!
