Traineeships at Tottenham Hotspur Foundation
The first seven youngsters to successfully complete a special Spurs traineeship have been celebrated in a presentation by club legend Ledley King.
The traineeship was in Employability and Customer Service and was delivered by Tottenham Hotspur Football Club through its Foundation.
It is designed to give 16 to 18-year-olds not in education, employment or training a taste of what it is like to work at the Foundation as well as the different types of careers available within the sports industry.
The seven were given tickets to a recent match as a reward for their hard work and were surprised by Ledley who presented them with a certificate during half-time.
Over the course of 12 weeks the seven participants shadowed Foundation staff to learn about responsibilities involved in delivering programmes to the community. This also provided a platform to gain valuable work experience.
The traineeship is designed for youngsters to gain the skills and qualifications needed to secure future employment. If you are interested in signing up for the next traineeship at Tottenham Hotspur Foundation please contact: email@example.com
