This is an Accrington Stanley Community apprenticeship scheme and in order for all the students to get the most out of the course they will become actively involved with various roles and aspects of the football club including work experience.
Accrington Stanley will provide the opportunity for all learners to undertake tasks that are relevant and support their studies.
The club will also provide expenses for the students during the length of the course.
Manager John Coleman said : "It is a training scheme I am hoping will be a success and I am delighted at the prospect of helping develop local young people with both their academic studies and football talents.
"Although primarily it is a training scheme I will be attending a number of sessions to join in personally to cast an eye over potential young Accrington Stanley footballers."
