CCO Study Programme

League Football Education – in partnership with the EFL and the EFL Trust – offers 16-18 year-old (male and female) learners the opportunity to study sport-related qualifications, while representing their club at football.

Learners will take part in an Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) funded study programme, improving their knowledge of sport and applying this to the practical element of their programme to improve their technical, tactical and physical ability. Upon completion of the course, learners can progress to university or full-time employment.

LFE will work hard to provide a supportive environment to allow learners to thrive, although research has shown that positive input from parents/carers is also vitally important.

Throughout the programme, every learner will face many challenges as they make the transition from full-time schooling to the demands of training and studying every day.

This time will only come around once, so LFE encourages all learners to enjoy this experience and realise that it is essential to give 100% towards their training and education.
