Leadership Through Sport & Business (LTSB) is a national social mobility charity that gives bright, ambitious young people who face disadvantage access to careers in accounting and finance.
LTSB focus attention on communities where leadership potential is often wasted and LTSB empower young people in the locations that they work to become future business leaders. LTSB address all forms of disadvantage: personal, in terms of adverse life events; socio-economic, in terms of class boundaries or lack of social capital; and practical, in terms of preparation young people need for the working world.
Employers increasingly recognise the importance of recruiting young talented individuals from diverse backgrounds. Many employers say that LTSB apprentices offer new ideas and fresh enthusiasm to their organisations. Our candidates are capable of making a valuable contribution to an employer but they are held back by a lack of social capital and life skills.
Young people in the areas where LTSB work need help to overcome a variety of barriers, lack of opportunity and often generations of unemployment. We provide them with a real chance and a helping hand to ignite their spark and to develop into well rounded members of their community and dedicated, hardworking employees who can ultimately become leaders, movers and shakers.
Evolve support LTSB via the recruitment process – by sourcing and matching candidates – as well as delivering the L2 and L3 Accounting qualifications to support the student’s employment.
LTSB is a four month pre apprenticeship programme leading to a twelve-month Level 3 apprenticeship. You will undertake a Level 2 AAT accounting qualification completing units such as Using Accounting Software and Bookkeeping Transactions. You will also complete FA Level 1 coaching, refereeing and first aid courses with the Chelsea Charitable Foundation.
Accounting Employment & Progression:
- Once fully qualified, accountants can earn £26,000 to £50,000+
- With experience, you could move into management or become self-employed and work on accounts for small businesses
- AAT qualifications are recognised across the world, so you could work overseas
