LFE has recently submitted claims to SkillsActive for the first LFE Apprentices to complete the ASE Framework. Of the four ASE starters at Nottingham Forest FC all are expected to achieve full frameworks, which is testimony to the professionalism of the Apprentices and the Club staff at Forest.

The paperwork has arrived for three of the four Apprentices and has been submitted for certification. The four Apprentices are:

Forest staff, justifiably proud of the success, also paid tribute to LFE. Jim King, one of two Education & Welfare Officers at Forest said:

LFE provide a lot of support. We only need to ring and we get immediate answers.”

He also praised the role that LFE Regional Officer, Keith Leighton, has played in the success of the Club’s Apprentices,

“Keith Leighton builds relationships with each Apprentice, he’s superb.”

LFE will be claiming many more full frameworks over the coming weeks and once they are certified will make achievement payments to both Clubs and Apprentices.

We would like to thank all the Apprentices, Club staff, Sub-contractor staff and others who have worked so hard over the last two years to achieve this success.
