Working in partnership with local projects we will deliver a motivational employment and sport based programme to help young people across the coalfield communities find work.


Through sports participation we can  create opportunities – not only providing the obvious health benefits, but also the less tangible benefits associated with community cohesion and personal achievement, through for example helping to develop community networks, providing positive activities for young people and creating competitive opportunities.


Each programme will offer up to 15 places for both men and women - between 18 and 24 years.  The programme involves:

  • Induction to programme, Individual assessments, identifying barriers, skills analysis
  • Developing individual action plans
  • Fitness assessment
  • Basic First Aid Training
  • Team building
  • Job search and employability support
  • Sports and motivational activity
  • SQA qualifications
