FoundationPremier League Inspires
The PL Inspires programme over the past three years has been supported five secondary schools, engaging with over 279 students within the core programme.
However, to coincide with the new PLCF funding cycle alongside the Foundations new secondary school delivery model, we are making changes in how we deliver programme. We have now moved to a delivery model which will see a LFC Foundation coordinator based within your school for 8-week period working with two cohorts. The staff will work with each cohort for one hour per week, with a maximum 10 students per cohort.
Over the eight-week period young people will have the opportunity to engage in classroom curriculum which focuses on developing numeracy and literacy skills. More importantly, the sessions will aim to develop personal and social skills, with LFC Foundation staff stretching and challenging everyone outside their comfort zone, improving their resilience and mental wellbeing.
Young people will be continually encouraged to take ownership of their own learning, developing understanding around the wider issues which are happening throughout our communities. LFC Foundation staff will deliver sessions such as LGBTQ+, Say No to Racism campaigns alongside educating young people around the power of social action. Participants in groups, will develop their own social action campaign with the aim to represent the LFC Foundation on a national level against other football clubs. This year's 21/22 Premier League Challenge focused on developing social action to support the environment and sustainability, with our winning group currently reinventing the design of recycling bins with the aim to encourage more people to recycle on matchdays at Anfield Stadium.
Overall, the programme aims to raise students' aspirations and motivations to achieve while inside and outside of education. If you would like to take the opportunity up for next academic year, please email email@example.com.
