AFL SportsReady paving the way to university, success and beyond!
AFL SportsReady congratulates former trainee after taking out the University of Tasmania’s Teaching Excellence Award.
Zane Littlejohn is one of a select group of students and graduates recognised in the annual Southern Cross Young Achiever Awards, aimed at acknowledging and promoting the achievements of Tasmanians aged under 28.
The rising star began his working career as an AFL SportsReady trainee with AFL Tasmania, before moving onto his Education Degree. From there it was only up for Littlejohn, with all of his hard work paying off after being named as Head Coach of North Launceston Football Club.
North Launceston went on to take out the 2014 Premiership and are battling for back-to-back bragging rights in the grand final this weekend. However, the success for Littlejohn hasn’t stopped there, with the young gun capping off 2014 being named Tasmanian State League Coach of the Year. When he’s not coaching the side he is putting his teaching skills to good use at Kings Meadows High School.
Littlejohn’s story showcases the endless educational and professional opportunities made possible, thanks to AFL SportsReady’s traineeships and education through certificates and diploma programs. Our organisation also continues to provide university pathways with partnerships across the nation, including with the University of Tasmania.
Now we offer more traineeships and job opportunities in the education sector than ever before, under the AFL SportsReady and ArtsReady programs.
