Premier League Inspires
Premier League Inspires is the Community Trust’s main project in comprehensive schools across the Swansea region. Our aim is to use the power of Swansea City AFC as a positive force to inspire young people to develop the personal skills and positive attitudes to succeed in life. We are delighted to be partnering with the Princes Trust to deliver this project.
There are two main elements to Premier League Inspires; a health and wellbeing course and delivery of units from the Princes Trust Achieve qualification.
Taking place in school and at the Liberty Stadium, the health and wellbeing course will inspire and encourage young people to develop a healthy lifestyle and relationships that will bring lifelong benefits. Young people taking part will learn about topics such as mental health, sleep, social media and healthy eating. They will then be supported by Community Trust staff to make positive changes in their lives.
The second element is based around the Princes Trust Achieve qualification. Participating schools will get access to 2 units from the Achieve qualification delivered by Swans Community Trust staff. These units will be based around the Swansea City AFC and the wider world of football, encouraging and enthusing pupils with real-life learning experiences.
Participating schools also receive:
- A co-produced social action project with pupils in their school
- Support for a collapsed curriculum day
- A Physical Education CPD session delivered in association with the Football Association
- Access to a national business challenge competition

“Every Tuesday, we at Swans Community Trust are setting teenagers a Health & Wellbeing challenge while you’re off school. This is a good time to reflect and consider what you can do to become happier and healthier during this break and beyond!
