Early Success for Sports Apprenticeships

The first groups on the Sports Apprenticeship programme have completed and we are pleased to report that 51 out of the 52 apprentices that started have achieved their apprenticeship framework.

The Sheffield Wednesday Community Trust had 42 achievers out of 43 apprentices and the Doncaster Rovers Education Foundation achieved a full house with 9 achievers out of 9 apprenticeship starts.

Director of ER for LifeSkills Angie Smith stated "we are really pleased with the early results, which is down to the hardwork of the LifeSkills team and the Trust staff. It is pleasing to see so many young people progress with their careers and achieve their apprenticeships".

LifeSkills work with numerous other football community programmes including:

Barnsley, Rotherham United, Scunthorpe United, Hull City, Exeter City, Grimsby Town and Huddersfield Town.

Recent partnerships with West Ham United, Northampton Town, Lincoln City and Bury have also been agreed.

“Enabling staff to work towards a qualification has given them a greater sense of pride and achievement. So we're reaping the rewards of a more motivated and loyal workforce.”
