30 January 2014

About the League Football Education Apprentice of the Year Award

Players eligible for this award are those in the second year of their apprenticeship (i.e. be in his 'Under-18' year and be registered as either a second-year scholar or as a first-year professional). Judges will look at the record of the player in all competitions since he became an apprentice alongside his education attainment, disciplinary record and any other outstanding achievements.

About League Football Education

League Football Education (LFE) was established in 2004 by The Football League and the Professional Footballers' Association to deliver the Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence education programme to 16 to 18-year-old players at the 72 Football League clubs.

In April 2012, LFE was judged as 'outstanding' by Ofsted after an inspection lasting five days, which confirmed LFE as one of the best providers of Work Based Learning in England. LFE is delighted and proud to sponsor The Football League Awards to recognise the Apprentice of the Year in each of The League's three divisions.
