Sport+, funded through Comic Relief Supporters Club, is an employability and leadership development work-based learning initiative using Sports Leaders UK levels 1 & 2 as a vehicle to attract participants and drive forward the learning environment. Further exploration of work place and employment practices using the ADSAN employability award alongside work experience opportunities and mentoring gives the programme its full scope.
Currently in its pilot phase, 1 Sept 2015 – 31 July 2017, the programme is being delivered by 2 delivery partners Safe in Tees Valley & Carlisle Youth Zone.
The programme will work with 100 young people in total during the pilot phase, 50 with each delivery partner, 25 per year, working towards 3 cohort groups per year. Whilst the programme has a mixed gender approach, at least one cohort will aim to be female only.
