WE ARE A LIFE-CHANGING CHARITY

Leadership Through Sport & Business is a social mobility charity that prepares and supports bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds into meaningful roles with major firms. We make sure those at risk of under-employment find careers equal to their ambition and ability, and can contribute from their first day on the job.

Together with Premier League football club foundations and education delivery partners, we provide young people with personal and professional development to prepare them for the world of work, and we place them in accounting and digital apprenticeships with leading employers in London, Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester.

OUR PROGRAMME

Our life-changing programme consists of two phases: a four-month pre-employment phase, followed by a paid Level 3 accounting or Level 4 digital apprenticeship with blue-chip companies.  Candidates are given the training and skills to succeed through:
