Leadership Through Sport & Business

Leadership Through Sport & Business


LTSB is a social mobility charity dedicated to helping young people into the world of work through our tailored employability programmes. These programmes provide young people with personal and professional development to prepare them for the world of work before we look to place them in apprenticeships and full-time roles with leading employers across the UK. We work with employers in a range of sectors including accountancy & finance, digital technology, customer service and law.

Here’s how it works;


Our LTSB bootcamps are between 2-12 weeks long, range from full to part time, and are tailored to give you the training and skills to succeed in your chosen career. We do this through delivering a number of different sessions such as exclusive interview coaching, CV workshops, critical thinking, communications, debating and presentation skills which are all delivered by the experienced LTSB Careers Development Managers. We also include insight events and Q&A sessions with leading companies, business professionals and previous LTSB Alumni.


We provide you with interview opportunities with specially selected employers offering paid apprenticeships or full-time roles. LTSB works hard to provide our apprentices with outstanding placements at major firms, to give not only the very best apprenticeship experience but also the opportunity of working for these organisations on a permanent basis at the end of the placement.


Once placed, LTSB continues to provide pastoral support between 6 - 12 months, ensuring you transition successfully into your role and your employer is equally supported. We also provide every apprentice with a dedicated volunteer professional mentor, who they will help you to address professional matters and encourage your development alongside your dedicated Careers Development Manager.
