Owls partner with NHS Trust

14 April 2021

As a further strand of our dedicated EFL Day of Action activity, the Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme (SWFCCP) is pleased to announce details of a new partnership with NHS Sheffield.

The link will see two traineeship placements from Hillsborough within the NHS Trust, in catering and hospitality, and cleaning and facilities management.

SWFCCP will be delivering the education and qualification arm of the project from our on-site Education Hub, where a raft of former students have previously graduated into full time employment.

Community Programme Traineeship Officer Alex Timmins-Jones said: “We are delighted to work with the NHS. I’d like to thank the NHS for providing this opportunity. We’re looking forward to building on previous successes with our traineeship scheme, as well as supporting the incredible workforce at our local NHS trust.”

Education Manager at SWFCCP Ed Kinsey added: “It’s great to work in collaboration with such a huge organisation as the NHS in tackling youth unemployment. We look forward to helping drive Sheffield Wednesday’s and the NHS’s efforts in the local community.”

The Owls are also one of six clubs who have helped pioneer the EFL’s new Training Ground initiative, which will help young people improve their mental and physical wellbeing and get match fit for prospective employment.
