Six Ajax Lambda Academy players complete business course


Six Ajax Cape Town Lambda Institute students have completed their Business Management Course at Generations Schools in Cape Town whilst focusing on a rigorous football training program.

The players are: 16-year-old Luca Oliaro, Patrick Fischer, Cade Erickson, Aden Dreyer, Andrew Fortune and Liam Bern – all aged 17.

“Ajax are extremely proud to announce the graduation of the first six Lambda Academy students who have passed their Business Management Course,” reads the club statement.

According to the ‘Urban Warriors’, the Lambda Academy boys are the first group who joined in 2017 as grade 9 learners and they have passed the Business Management course through Generation Schools.

“The Business Management course is a UK recognised Level 3 which is similar to a South African NQF Level 4 (matric),” – Ajax. Picture: Ajax Cape Town. 

“Gaining a pass allowed the students to start with a Higher Certificate in Business Leadership which they will be finishing at the end of this year. This achievement allows them to apply to several UK Universities should they wish to further their studies,” said a statement from Ajax.

“In these uncertain times, we are very proud of our players for their dedication and perseverance to reach their academic goals. What makes it even more remarkable is that they have done so at a very young age.

“We would like to thank our partners, Generation Schools, for their continuous support and dedication in ensuring that the boys achieved this qualification.”

“They will never know how much it means to us,” concluded Johannes.
