Coalfield Sport Works

CRT Sport Works are employability programmes, being delivered in partnership with Falkirk Football Foundation and School of Hark Knocks, targeted at potential participants sometimes defined as ‘hard to reach’ within society.

‘Coalfields Sport Works’ re-engages learners and provides them with the skills, qualifications and experience to enter employment, volunteering or further learning.

School Of Hard Knocks – Alloa, Clackmannanshire

What is it?

The course will use lessons out on the pitch or in the gym, alongside classroom-based activities.  The main beneficiaries are unemployed adults, so the course will deliver life and employability skills such as goal-setting, anger and fear management, CV-writing and interview preparation. This structure comes together with the ultimate aim of enabling participants to find employment and realise their potential.

How does it work?

The eight week course through three distinct phases – The Person, The Mind and The Career. We teach a framework of positive values and behaviours to equip participants for the workplace and for life more generally. Our unique SOHK psychology helps people overcome the barriers that stand in their way.
