Street League: combining CV skills with sport

Future career success enhanced through football 

Street League, the UK’s leading Sport for Employment Charity, has facilitated a 10-week programme at Leeds City Academy with all Year 11 boys.

This programme has combined discipline on the sports field, employability skills, sporting activities, interview tips and CV writing. 

All students have thoroughly engaged in the activities they have taken part in and the enthusiastic Leeds Street League Team have been instrumental in the successful running of this programme and the positive impact it has had on our students.

Ms Ward said: “Students have gained confidence and maintained positivity throughout the programme and 40% of the boys further participated in activities at the Street League premises over the Easter holiday enabling them to forge long lasting relationships with their peers and other students in the community.”
