Studying with Future Lions Education sets up players aged between 16 and 19 for life, with players from our sites gaining contracts in professional and semi-professional football, places and scholarships at universities in the UK and abroad, coaching apprenticeships, and even jobs in the armed forces.

We enjoy supporting students in their career ambitions from the moment they arrive to when they leave, and throughout their working lives – whatever direction they choose to pursue following their course.
