Studying with LLS is different to enrolling at a traditional sixth form or college. Our courses have been designed specifically for you. We want you to enjoy your learning experience with us and our aim is to expose you to new and inspiring experiences which will help you to develop key skills and prepare you for your dream career.

Work experience

Study with LLS and you will enjoy a balance of weekly work experience as part of your timetable. Your week will include at least two types of volunteering; one day working with children where you will develop as a leader and a second day working with sports professionals in an environment where you hope to work in the future.

International exchanges

By joining LLS, you become a member of our learning network. You and your classmates will have the opportunity to travel to meet and learn with other cohorts across England, Ireland and Wales. If you enjoy these experiences, you can apply for our 7-10 day learning exchanges in Tenerife, Finland and Qatar.

Rewards trips

We believe in rewarding young people who work hard and dedicate themselves to their LLS course. If you’re committed and meet your coursework deadlines, you will enjoy a host of rewards upon completion of each unit. Popular trips include visits to St George’s Park, media days at adidas HQ and tours to some of the UK’s top academies.

Guest speakers

Our guest speaker series takes place in the classroom, out in the sports industry and online. We are fortunate to have a large professional network meaning you can be inspired by some of sports most successful individuals. Our guests range from Tyson Fury’s strength & conditioning coach to Olympic medal-winning athletes and Liverpool FC’s former C.E.O, Peter Moore.

Global coaching conference

Being paid to travel the world is often a dream for many young people. At LLS, we can make that dream a reality. Each year in November, LLS welcome active employers to present their job offers to our students. Our most recent event saw students secure personal training internships in Dubai as well as multi-sports coaching jobs in USA, Canada, China, Sri Lanka and Qatar.

Women Who Lead

Supporting our women in sport has become a big part of LLS’ mission which is why every year on International Women’s Day, we host our Women Who Lead event. This day focusses on bringing both LLS and Steven Gerrard Academy’s female students together and introducing them to inspiring women in the sports industry.
