Brentford Football Club’s Community Sports Trust is running a new 12 week programme starting in February designed to help young people aged 16-18 enter employment, training or further education.

Spaces are available on the full-time course, which offers 15 hours a week of work placements, 12 hours a week of ’employability’ training, and workshops aimed at providing young adults with the life skills they need to be independent. Sessions include money management, knife crime, first aid, health and nutrition.

The course also offers a Sports Leaders qualification and functional skills in English and Maths for those who have not passed GCSE level 4 / Grade C.

Brentford FC Community Sports Trust say their course offers young people the opportunity to improve their confidence and communication skills and supports their progress on the career of their choice, with opportunities to learn from industries including hospitality, youth work, IT and sports coaching.
