A unique trainee opportunity with the AFC Wimbledon Foundation

Are you aged 16-18 and not sure what to do next?  Not sure which course to take at college or if further education is for you?  Or do you want to go into employment but don’t know what you want to do?  Maybe you are struggling to get on the first rung of the employment ladder?

Our 12 week traineeship programme will help you find out more about the world of work and help you to take the next steps that are right for you.

What’s involved?

For 12 weeks you’ll be a trainee at AFC Wimbledon.

You’ll spend three days per week on work placement doing a variety of roles within the club, which might include coaching, administration, hospitality, grounds maintenance, match day duties or being a shop assistant.

You’ll spend a day developing employability skills such a CV writing, interview techniques, money skills or problem solving.

One day a week will be spent developing your functional skills (for example if you don’t have English & Maths to GCSE grade C).

As a trainee you will also take a basic coaching qualification with us.

By the end of the programme you’ll be in a much better position to choose your next step: into work with training, an apprenticeship, or into full time education.

The programme is also open for individuals up to the age of 24 years old if they have a local authority sourced statement of disability.

We are looking to run the AFC Wimbledon Traineeship Programme from Monday 16 January so please get your applications in immediately.
