Youngsters in Wolverhampton, Manchester, Bolton and Blackburn are set to gain a sports leadership qualification that could help them become the professional coaches of the future thanks to a partnership with BT Sport’s charitable initiative, The Supporters Club and the England Footballers Foundation (EFF).
It’s important in our tenth year that the EFF continues to give something back...
England Defender, Gary Cahill
A grant of £250,000 has been awarded to OnSide Youth Zones from The Supporters Club and England Footballers Foundation (EFF) to deliver a sports employability project with around 400 young people aged 13-21 set to benefit from the funding across its network of state-of-the-art facilities.
Members of the four Youth Zones will have the opportunity to take part in an eight-week course and gain either a Level 1 Coaching Award or a Sports Leadership Qualification awarded by Sports Leaders UK.
The programme; ‘E3 – Enable, Educate, Empower’ aims to give youngsters the opportunity to progress into employment, education or training in order to pursue careers in sport.
Participants will develop the confidence, skills and experience to then deliver their own coaching sessions in a sport of their choice to other young people in the Youth Zone areas.
The partnership with EFF and BT Sport – The Supporters Club – will also enable young people to take part in workplace taster days, a range of sporting activities and have the opportunity to meet and be inspired by members of the England football team.
