LFE in partnership with the EFL Trust, are offering 16-18 year-old (male and female) learners, the opportunity to study Sport related qualifications while representing their club at Futsal. Futsal is an exciting, small sided football game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognised by both UEFA and FIFA.
Learners will take part in an ESFA funded study programme improving their knowledge of sport and applying this to the practical element of their programme to improve their technical, tactical, physical and psychological ability. Upon completion of the course learners can progress on to University or full time employment.
We realise that for many youngsters the study programme is both an exciting but daunting proposition, information on our website will provide you with the information that will help you better understand the learner journey.
League Football Education will work hard to provide a supportive environment to allow all learners to thrive but research has shown that positive input from parents/guardians is also vitally important.
Over the next two years 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 I would encourage all learners to enjoy this experience and realise that it is essential to give 100% towards their Futsal and education.

Learners must attend all elements of their Study Programme to ensure they remain a Full Time learner throughout the duration of their studies.
