What you get as a Leadership Through Sport & Business Apprentice?
"I wouldn't be where I am now without Leadership Through Sport & Business. When I was offered a place I had the option to stay at College and continue with my A Levels (Biology, Economics and Maths) or join the LTSB programme and at first I was reluctant to accept, but I have no regrets about my choice. I have never looked back."
