The SWFC Community Programme has announced a programme of in-school workshops to help local youngsters identify their career goals.
This is part of a national programme called ‘What’s Your Goal?’, run by Football League sponsor npower, to give students the chance to experience work life in the football industry.
As part of the in-school sessions hosted by the Community Programme, local youngsters will learn how to complete an application form and will be encouraged to apply for one of five placements at the club.
The career-focused lessons are suitable for Y10 students and will be taking place between now and February next year.
Clare McDougall, head of community and education for npower, said: “Clubs have a real range of exciting roles on offer: coaches, media managers and club shop workers to sports therapists, stadium managers and groundsmen.
“There’s a real opportunity to for youngsters to get a valuable insight into what it’s like to work in the world of football.”
The closing date to apply for work experience at SWFC is 1 March 2013.
