Play-Makers Employability Programme
During a transfer window, a Football Manager will often share his desire to sign a ‘Play-Maker’ – someone who can ‘make things happen’ for their team.
Employers are no different. During the recruitment process for a new member of staff, Business Managers strive to employ someone who can demonstrate their ability and enthusiasm to support the continued growth and progression of their company. Utilising the facilities provided by Links Park Stadium in Montrose (the home of Montrose Football Club), Links Park Community Trust (LPCT) in partnership with Angus Council, wish to offer a 14-week programme (1 day a week) for those aged 16-19 and not in employment, education and/or training.
Using sport, and in particular football, as an alternative and somewhat appealing context to learning, we aim to deliver an innovative programme of fun yet challenging activities that develop skills for life and work.
