League Football Education (LFE) has signed up to the U-Explore network
Every young apprentice within the Football League now has access to U-Explore's ‘Job Bank’, ‘Where Could I Work?’ and ‘360-Degree Virtual Tours’ packages to learn more about the many career opportunities that are available to them.
League Football Education (LFE) manages the educational programme for apprentices at clubs within the Football League. These apprentices join the Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (ASE), which aims to bring out the very best in sporting ability, whilst delivering a high standard of education, too.
Figures show that after a two-year football Apprenticeship, approximately 60% of apprentices are let go. In line with these figures, LFE intends to use U-Explore to give apprentices access to careers advice across a range of industries.
Providing these young people with in-depth careers education through U-Explore will help to arm those that are not part of the select few to make it in this industry with the tools to build on an alternative career.
U-Explore will help to show young apprentices what they can do with the qualifications, experience and personal skills they already have, as well as pointing them in the right direction for further qualifications.
The Football League includes clubs from the Championship, League One and League Two, which is 72 clubs in total!
