PFA Scotland ran our first ever ‘My Future Now’ series of events in February 2020.
These events, aimed at 2nd year apprentices coming to the end of their contracts, were held over 3 days in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth with 100 young players in attendance from clubs across the Premiership and Championship.
The players were taught skills like creating a CV and basic interview techniques to enable them to prepare for a second career and applying for potential employment or studies in the future.
They also heard from senior players who shared the experiences of their football journey and their transition to life after playing.
These events were put together by our Personal Development Officer Chris Higgins and plans are currently underway for an online version of My Future Now to be held in February 2021.
