Since Plymouth Argyle’s Toby Davis became the first LFE export to sign professional terms in Sweden in 2008 over 100 players have tried their luck on foreign soil with close to 30 gaining full-time deals in Sweden and Spain.
Found in the Progression area of our website the LFE Opportunities Board continues to provide current and former apprentices with relevant and more importantly realistic opportunities across sport, education, employment and training.
Being offered or signing a professional deal is a dream scenario for most young players. However it is worth remembering that if you are unsure about any aspect relating to your contract or wish to obtain any advice about the terms and conditions of a contract, The Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) is on hand to help.
Please see the below link to this year’s Exit Survey. We are aiming to get 100% of second year Apprentices to complete the survey so please do your best to make sure this happens over the next couple of months!
League Football Education offers extensive support to young players leaving the apprenticeship programme. This is designed to help youngsters move on to new career paths and is supplemented by a vast range of information, advice and guidance.
