The Football Association are working with the Association of Colleges to bring together key stakeholders from T Level providers and football employers to form local area partnerships to support industry placements.

These partnerships will be established to agree joint agendas that aim to collectively meet workforce and skills needs through the promotion of industry placements. The Football Association and Association of Colleges will support the formation of these local area partnerships to ensure that we establish and protect placement opportunities for current and future T Levels.

Initially there is a focus to provide placements for Digital T Level students, with the aim of utilising these partnerships in the future to provide further industry placements for the Business and Administration T Level. These placements will provide the opportunity for students to apply their knowledge in an industry that is at the heart of providers and students local communities.

If you are interested in joining a local area partnership please confirm your interest by emailing laura.danskin@aoc.co.uk by Friday 25 March 2022 at 17:00

Following registered interest we will be in touch to invite providers to meet with football employers online throughout April and May.
