Skills for Life
A brand new course in fitness, nutrition and leadership in sport has been launched by Mitre at Queens Park Rangers to help young unemployed adults take skills training to the next level. Learners aged between 16 and 24 are participants on the ‘Barclays Premier League Works Programme’ at QPR which aims to develop social, financial and employability skills. The new qualification follows on from a successful customer service course Mitre ran in partnership with the club as part of the same programme and it aims to keep building participants’ employability and personal skills ready for the workplace.
Jack Kelley from the QPR Community Trust, comments: “This brand new course in fitness, nutrition and leadership is already proving a popular addition to our employability programme for young people in the community. Our overarching goal is to support those who are not in education, employment or training and are looking to develop their confidence, team-work skills and job prospects. This course helps us do just that by equipping students with the skills they need to begin a successful career in sport.”
The new qualification forms part of the L1 Certificate in Employment and Skills and is accredited by the awarding body Aim Awards. Mitre works regularly with Aim Awards to tailor existing programmes and design new accredited qualifications that meet the needs and ambitions of the students and organisations we work with, whether in the sports arena or other sectors.
We’d love to hear from you.
