A curriculum based programme aimed at young people aged 11-25 years old, who are marginalised or at risk of not fulfilling their potential. Available free to all secondary schools or educational establishments. The programme runs across the academic year with a mixture of stadium based events, timetabled sessions, 1:1 support meetings and social action volunteering. The programme focuses on improving confidence, developing skills, gaining knowledge and creating a positive attitude. The programme can be adapted and tailored to the needs, abilities and outcomes of the young people.
Goal: To inspire children and young people to develop the personal skills and positive attitudes to succeed in life.
The programme is delivered across two terms with the potential for young people to undertake some social action work during the Summer term. Schools can select up to twelve young people all of whom have at least one primary risk factor to take part in the programme. Schools are required to allocate one-hour weekly slot where Trust staff can attend the school and deliver workshops. Starting with a launch day at the stadium, students then undertake eight sessions looking at Behind the turnstiles, followed by eight sessions on Off the pitch skills. With a further option to put the skills developed into practice and undertake social action work across the Summer term with the support of Trust delivery staff.
The programme can be tailored to meet any additional needs or special educational needs. This can be discussed further with the Trust to ensure the needs and requirements are met.
