League Football Education
Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (ASE)
LFE manage the educational programme for Apprentices at Football League clubs over a two-year period.
During this period, all Apprentices will join the Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (ASE), which provides a co-ordinated and streamlined approach to the delivery of education.
LFE is charged by Government policy and funded by the Skills Funding Agency (SFA)/Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) to deliver the Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (ASE). A conceptual diagram is outlined below:
From the model you can see that the ASE is a continuous cycle of integrated work based experience (the Football Development Programme), work based learning (the NVQ) and academic education (the Technical Certificate), each providing information to the others.
Further information about each element of the ASE framework can be viewed in the ‘Apprentice Journey’ section of the LFE website: http://www.lfe.org.uk
The role of the PFA Coaching Department is to prepare its members for a secondary career within the professional game, possibly within coaching or management.
PFA members can get access to exclusive offers on cars, travel, golf equipment, event tickets, audio visual equipment plus much more!
