The programme sits within the Youth Engagement theme of the Premier League’s Good Causes Strategy and aims to engage 16 to 24 year olds who have dropped out of school or have had limited education or training opportunities and have been hit hardest by youth unemployment. This unique partnership not only aims to improve the employability and financial skills of marginalised young people, but also helps them into employment or further education.
Age groups: 16-24
Locations: Old Trafford, Salford Sports College, The Cliff Training Ground.
Duration: 11 Months
Outcomes: Participants who take part in this project are likely to have a better understanding of the employment market and will help develop career goals for the future. The programme will also address concerns about going into employment or further education or training. Participants will have the opportunity to gain FA recognised coaching qualifications and have access to training courses to improve their personal development.
