Millwall Community Trust: Putting Football at the Heart of Education.

Millwall Community Trust are using football to ensure young people remain in education after leaving secondary school at 16.

The Post-16 academy, which allows students to play regular competitive football, provides a range of vocational qualifications which allow students to pursue careers within the sports industry.

These careers include coaching, physiotherapy and sports management, with some students going on to make it as professional footballers.

Take a look at below at our interview with MCT coach Kenrick Dyer, where he explains how the work of the Post-16 academy can change the lives of the students who are involved.
