Tottenham Hotspur Football Club is the latest Premier
League football club to choose Myerscough College as their
sportsturf apprenticeships delivery partner.
Myerscough College has a long, proven track record of delivery
in the sector and is one of the world’s largest providers of
sportsturf education. This week sees the advertisement of the first
opportunity within the grounds team at Tottenham Hotspur, with
apprenticeships a key driver at the North London club in attracting
new entrants into the industry, as well as helping to upskill and
succession plan with existing staff.
The apprentices will have the opportunity to work at the
world-class Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and the club’s
state-of-the-art training facility, with exposure to some of the
highest standards, latest equipment and technologies within the
Grounds Management industry.
Darren Baldwin, Tottenham Hotspur’s Head of Playing Surfaces and
Estates, said: “Apprenticeships give us the chance to recruit new
members of our team with fresh ideas and a passion for the
industry, while we can develop them so they can understand our
vision in order to meet our high standards. This will be a
significant long-term investment from the club which will also
enhance our succession plan.
“Myerscough College come highly recommended, and we look forward
to seeing our apprentices develop, and hopefully progress within
the Club. We have some exciting future plans, both within
apprenticeships and other technical industry training with
Myerscough College. We know our apprentices will play a big part in
our team’s future successes.”
Lee Price, Employer Services Manager at Myerscough College,
adds: ”We assist employers across the country to recruit and train
apprentices. It’s fantastic that Tottenham Hotspur has chosen us as
their sportsturf apprenticeships provider, and I am looking forward
to seeing the journey apprentices take as they develop in their new
roles within the club.
”Apprenticeships are an amazing way for people to start a
career and I know the team at Tottenham Hotspur will provide a
first-class training and development environment. This really is an
amazing opportunity, and we are looking forward to meeting and
training the new apprentices.
