The Prince’s Trust visits The Albion Foundation
The Albion Foundation delivered a ‘Get Started with Football’ programme for the Prince’s Trust with a group of 16-25 year-olds invited to take part in the week-long course.
The scheme involves participants carrying out tasks of a sporting nature which focus on the development of leadership, communication and individual confidence.
Activities include; football coaching, team building, problem solving and taking part in football sessions.
Khloe Hyde said: “I find it difficult to speak in large groups but this week has really improved my confidence. It has also given me my love back for football and is something I will now be taking up again”.
At the end of the week, each Prince’s Trust participant is awarded a certificate in Sports Leadership. This can be added to their CV and is a recognised qualification.
To mark the completion of the scheme there is a celebratory event which involves a ground tour of The Hawthorns with behind the scenes access. This is followed by a video presentation and awards ceremony in our media suite.
Dan Crane, employability coordinator at The Albion Foundation said: “The group have been fantastic and showed a real team spirit. They have all delivered some excellent coaching sessions, we wish them well for the future”.
Anthony Smith said: “It has been a fantastic week, I have really enjoyed it I would like to thank both the Foundation and Prince’s Trust staff for their help”.
