Leadership through sport

Our apprenticeship partner Leadership Through Sport & Business have released an impact report covering the past five years demonstrating some very exceptional results.  

A registered social mobility charity, Leadership Through Sport & Business take bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and put them on a 16-month apprenticeship combining sports coaching and accountancy, including a paid work placement at a top city employer. Locally, students from Ealing, Hammersmith & West London's College do the programme in conjunction with the Chelsea FC Foundation, making us the only West London College working with the club. 

Leadership Through Sport & Business have supported 232 young people so far, placing them with seven different firms, including Macquarie, Deloitte, EY, Grant Thornton, RSM, BKL and ICAP, with an 83% completion rate, furthering the College's relationship with local employers.
