Tigers Trust host day of inspiration and activity for #PLInspires participants
Posted on 1st December 2022 at 09:41
Premier League Inspires students from the Tigers Trust’s partnered secondary schools engaged with a day of inspiration yesterday.
Developed by the Premier League and professional football clubs, the Premier League Inspires programme launched in 2019 and creates life-changing opportunities for young people who have been identified by their schools as needing extra support to engage with activities.
Students engaged with a range of activities throughout the day, such as taking part in teamworking tasks with the army and learning the basics of first aid with local charity Achieve Potentials.
Adam Corbally, formerly of The Apprentice, delivered a motivational talk to the students about the importance of resilience and not giving up.
The day concluded with a tour of the MKM Stadium when students were given the chance to visit behind-the-scenes areas, such as the changing rooms and hospitality boxes.
Mrs Simpson from Howden School said: “The collapsed curriculum days that the Tigers Trust run provide the enrichment for our students that normal lessons can’t provide.”
The Trust’s Secondary School Partnership Manager Ellis Oliver said: “These days are aimed at putting into practice a range of skills developed in sessions with staff over a period of weeks in school by interacting with guest speakers and other local organisations.
“It is also a great opportunity to raise aspirations and engage more broadly with the football club, including seeing the inner workings of the stadium.”
