Sport 4 Life UK has been heavily involved in the creation of an EU-wide toolkit which provides a blue-print for delivering successful sports-themed employability programmes to young people.
The research project ‘Team Up!’, in partnership with global football charity streetfootballworld, spanned over 2 and half years, brought together 8 EU-based partners working in the ‘sport for employment’ sector, and culminated in the toolkit resource.
Sport 4 Life’s involvement covered best practice, training, case studies, EU project visits, and co-writing of the resource. The toolkit provides useful practical advice and guidance, and is aimed at organisation who (a) deliver sports programme, but want to include employability activities or (b) deliver employability programmes, but want to include football / sport as a tool.
