Government Interest in LFE

John Pemberton & Nick Marshall, Nottingham Forest.

LFE were delighted that representatives from The Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) took time out from Whitehall to visit Nottingham Forest. The purpose of the visit being to get a close up view of how Forest educate their rising young stars.

The three Government representatives spent a day at the Forest Academy and The City Ground to witness first hand how the club’s apprentices are groomed for life both on and off the pitch.

They looked on as the apprentices were put through their paces on the training ground and in the classroom.

Colin Gibson (DCMS) stated,

“I am very impressed with what I’ve seen, the key aspects are Nottingham Forest’s commitment to invest in not only the facilities but also the individuals themselves.”

“I was actually surprised at how integral the education has been, it’s not a separate unit but very much at the heart of the club.”

LFE would like to thank Nottingham Forest for allowing us to use this article and picture.
