Leadership through Sport & Business (LTSB) prepare and support bright young people who face disadvantages into secure, sustainable, high-quality careers in accounting, business and finance.
Together with the LFC Foundation, other Premier League Community initiatives and education delivery partners, LTSB provides young people with personal and professional development to prepare them for the world of work, and we place them in AAT Level 2 and 3 apprenticeships with leading employers in London, Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester.
LTSB focuses attention on communities where leadership potential is often wasted, and we empower young people in the locations that we work to become future business leaders, addressing all forms of disadvantage: personal, in terms of adverse life events; socio-economic, in terms of class boundaries or lack of social capital; and practical, in terms of preparation young people need for the working world.
Participants are provided with a real chance and a helping hand to ignite their spark and to develop into well rounded members of their community and dedicated, hardworking employees who can ultimately become leaders, movers and shakers.
The LFC Foundation provide a Sports Leadership qualification, as well as volunteering experience. The two-year scheme includes four to six months of pre-apprenticeship training that prepares students to transfer their skills into a professional environment, pivotal to their development.
Our candidates are given the training and skills to ensure they have a robust foundation for a career in accounting. They study and achieve internationally recognised qualifications from the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT).
