My Future Today Kicks-off

My Future Today Kicks-off

My Future Today kicked-off with young players from Hull City and Grimsby Town this week at Bishop Burton College.

The initiative which was introduced last year to replace League Football Education’s national careers event is geared towards the personal development of young footballers.

It helps players aged 16-18-years-old discover their own psychometric and personality profiles, understand their employability skills and raise awareness around dual careers and opportunities away from football.

This seasons programme which is supported by AFTA Thought, The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust and Liverpool John Moores University, will take place at 14 regional venues and involve over 600 apprentice footballers from 36 football clubs.

League Football Education, Project Manager Dan Jolley, said: “These events are focussed on personal development and providing an opportunity for apprentices to think about their own personality, skills and interests.

“It is a holistic approach to support them in becoming rounded individuals. In turn that delivers on and off the pitch benefits. We want them to understand their own identity and realise that they are more than just young footballers.

“The presence of ex-professional’s and other former elite athletes reinforces that message and we ensure that everyone leaves with a raised awareness of the support networks and opportunities that are open to them.”
