Find success outside the classroom
Aged 16 to 30? Not currently in work, education or training? Get in touch.
Not everyone finds success in the classroom and not everyone gets top grades. We believe that attitude, determination and teamwork are even more important. We believe every young person should have the chance to succeed and everything we do is focused on supporting you to move into work, education, an apprenticeship or training.
Here at Street League, we use the power of sport to help you achieve your full potential, building the confidence and skills needed in life and the world of work. You can play sport every day, learn key skills and get the qualifications you need to get a job and get paid. It’s not about having mad football skills or being super fit, it’s about having the determination to move into work and having fun at the same time!
Our academies use the Skills Builder Universal Framework and we are proud to have achieved Level 4 (Progressing in essential skills) for our Sports and Employability programmes across England.Where We Work
