Education & Skills

Our education programmes harness the power of sport to support learners who may be at risk of disengaging with education or who are excluded. Our existing clients including Central Government, Colleges, Prisons and Local Authorities recognise how sport can engage learners in a way that almost no other subject can.

About our programmes

We are all too aware of how, without the right support, permanent and fixed term exclusions are negatively affecting the progress of young people.

Alternative Education

Those most likely to undergo extended or repeated periods of exclusion are the ones who need more adult supervision, not less.

Our team design bespoke learning plans which help young people to improve behaviour, skills and confidence so that they can return to the classroom focused on learning and less likely to disengage.

Funded Programmes

SportWorks has secured Government funding to offer the following programmes free of charge:

Adult Education Budget: 100% funding for learners aged 19+, including those unemployed or with SEN
