LFC Foundation supports Careers in FOCUS Programme

LFC Foundation

Team members for the LFC Foundation and Liverpool Football Club were on hand to help support IntoUniversity North Liverpool’s Careers in FOCUS event, which was held at Anfield Stadium last month.

IntoUniversity North Liverpool is a partnership project with the LFC Foundation, official charity of Liverpool Football Club, University of Liverpool and national educational charity, IntoUniversity.

The project supports children and young people in North Liverpool to reach their educational potential by providing a dedicated learning centre, after-school clubs, homework support and mentoring schemes.
Careers in FOCUS events bring together year 9 secondary school children with adult professionals as a valuable and engaging introduction to the world of work.

LFC Foundation and Liverpool FC volunteers led hands-on workshops about their career pathway, offering students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the working world and gain knowledge of the skills and qualifications they need to pursue their ambitions.
During the session at Anfield, students were challenged to create a digital magazine, plan a fundraising event and were taken through a typical day in the life of an LFC Foundation Project Lead.

The team were amazed at the range of ideas from the students and their enthusiasm to learn as much as they could on the day, and were delighted to be able to support the next generation professionals.
