Chelsea Foundation – Education through football

Using the power and popularity of football, our education team offers a variety of programmes for young people creating football-themed maths, English, IT and history lessons.

By writing match reports or working out the number of goals scored, pupils – who often have struggled in formal education – respond very positively to these innovative methods. We also offer IT education to senior citizens, teaching them how to use programmes such as Skype and FaceTime, as well as offering advice on emails enabling them to keep in touch with each other and their families.

Reading is hugely important in anything you do and football is no different so it is vital the foundation work with youngsters to help them in this area” Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Working in partnership with learning providers, we use the power of football and the Chelsea style to excite and motivate learners of all ages.
Our education department continues to build on successful relationships with schools, colleges and the local community and to develop and deliver exciting education initiatives which help inspire participants to achieve their learning goals. Each season our education projects help over 2,000 learners aged seven to 70 plus.

Our employability programmes support job seekers to find work, while we support learning in over 60 partner schools and colleges across Hammersmith and Fulham, Wandsworth, Westminster and Kensington and Chelsea, Brent and Croydon. In particular, projects focus on improving participants’ skills and attitudes to learning, the club’s rich history and changes in lifestyle and society over the last century. Literacy, numeracy, employability, enterprise and technology are a focus for our projects. Anti-discrimination, celebrating equality and diversity are also key messages taught across our programmes.
