Premier League Enterprise is an inspiring 20-hour intervention project for pupils in Years 7-9 who may be struggling or underachieving in school.
It aims to build motivation, confidence and aspirations, whilst improving enterprise skills such as innovation, problem solving and team working. It is embedded into the school curriculum and focuses on literacy, numeracy and digital literacy through engaging activities linked to the business of football.
The Swans Community Trust delivers the project across South West Wales and participating schools believe that “Premier League Enterprise brings enterprise and employability skills into KS3 in an engaging and vibrant way that pupils really enjoy.”
Taking part in an exclusive learning experience delivered by Swansea City AFC Community Trust motivates and enthuses pupils, as do the unique opportunities that can only be offered by going behind the scenes at a professional football club.
“I loved Premier League Enterprise. My confidence is so much better, and I don’t mind presenting in front of the class anymore.”
Connor, Year 8
Pupils spend 2 full days of learning at the Liberty Stadium, and in-between these sessions Swansea City AFC Community Trust staff deliver 4 double lessons in school, along with an optional football coaching session at the end of the course.
Participating schools also get to compete in the Premier League Enterprise Challenge, an exciting nationwide business competition for pupils in Years 8, 9 and 10 that aims to engage and inspire young people identified as being at risk of not achieving their full potential.
Premier League Enterprise is supported by Sport Relief and the Premier League Charitable Fund.
