Tottenham Hotspur Education Academy
Tottenham Hotspur Foundation and Mitre have teamed up to run the Tottenham Hotspur Education Academy. The first of its kind among Premier League clubs, the Education Academy will extend the work of the Foundation in providing the best training and education programmes for young people in Haringey.
The Education Academy creates opportunities for up to 500 people each year to gain new skills, knowledge and accredited qualifications that will benefit individuals, the local economy and wider community.
Delivered at White Hart Lane, a wide range of programmes are delivered, from degree-level senior management courses to community employability programmes which help address local unemployment. The vast majority of programmes within the Education Academy are Government funded and therefore free of charge to those taking part.
Nikki Kelly, Employment and Skills Manager at Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, said:
“Each year the Academy goes from strength to strength. Mitre's expertise and experience in creating tailored courses, together with our commitment to creating opportunities for our communities means we can provide a broad range of exciting and relevant programmes which help people develop and progress their careers.
The Education Academy is just one of many ways that Tottenham Hotspur Foundation provides support for people in the local area to get back into employment and education. We hope that by bringing people into the heart of the club, we can provide an inspiring and motivational home for learning within the community.”
We’d love to hear from you.
