Post 16 Study Programme
Sporting Chances’ fully funded, programme is aimed specifically at young adults from the most disadvantaged communities.

A large proportion of young adults aged 16-25 from these areas feel that the primary barrier to them creating a better quality of life (for themselves/their family) is lack of easily accessible opportunities.

The number of opportunities to gain qualifications and skills for employment are significantly lower than in previous years, and that this reduces aspiration and determination to succeed.

Our program offers young adults the opportunity to work towards a number of qualifications in an engaging and practical structured sessions.

We also offer work placement opportunities for young adults to gain the confidence and experience needed before applying for job vacancies.
