Leadership Through Sport & Business is a social mobility charity that gives bright, disadvantaged young people access to high-level careers in business and finance.
Our life-changing sixteen-month apprenticeship programme doesn’t just improve employability; it results in employment. Through intensive training with LTSB, football foundations and blue-chip companies, our participants are developed personally and professionally, and better prepared for the business world. The success rate is incredible: we’re proud that 100% of all graduates from the first two Intakes went on to full-time employment or chose higher education instead.
We currently work with Chelsea, West Ham United, Aston Villa and Leyton Orient’s foundations to deliver coaching, mentoring and leadership skills. We also work with selected FE Colleges including South & City College Birmingham, Westminster Kingsway College, College of Haringey Enfield & North East London and Newham College to deliver academic qualifications.
We are delighted to be working with Manchester City FC City in the Community and Kaplan in Manchester for our 2016 Intake. We are also delighted to be working with Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College together with Chelsea FC Foundation this year.
