Premier League Inspires
PL Inspires is a secondary school project funded by the Premier League Charitable Fund since 2019. At Tigers Trust the PL Inspires project works with students in secondary schools that typically face barriers to them achieving their full potential such as low confidence and self-esteem, attendance, or social skills*.
Activities are delivered at school sites by our staff focused at developing students’ personal skills and supporting them to become more aware of next steps in education and the working world. Activity specific opportunities also provide the chance for students to engage with external visits, collapsed curriculum days, sports activities, gain qualifications and work towards a variety of incentives.
Schools interested in engaging with the project should review the partnership offer options on the PowerPoint attached which outlines delivery and costs before contacting us with an enquiry.
For further details or to enquire about a partnership please contact Ellis Oliver (Partnership Manager- Inspires Lead) at [email protected] or call 07999 030157

Hannah at Tigers Trust has been great with me and really helped through my anxiety and made school life easier. She is easy to talk to so I feel I can talk about things if I need to.
Year 9 Student - Malet Lambert
With Tigers Trust we have developed skills such as teamwork through the activities we have done. Doing Sports Leaders, we have looked at how to adapt a session to make them fun and so that everyone can participate. In presentation skills we now know what makes a good presentation.
Year 9 Student - Holderness Academy
Tigers Trust has helped me to be more active after school. It gives me something positive to do when I finish school for the day. The sessions keep me fit and I’ve now joined the gym as well. I get on well with Amy and she has made me feel confident at sessions and in my lessons.
Year 10 Student - Marvell College
Tigers Trust support is invaluable! The member of staff goes above and beyond everyday for both students and staff. I learn from her everyday, she’s so nurturing and patient with everyone she works with and is an asset to the College and the Trust
Miss K. McDougall - The Marvell College
We chose to work with the Tigers Trust 'Inspires' project as we recognised the need for our students to access additional work aside from their curriculum lessons, in which it would complement their development not only academically but also their social and emotional skills.
We have seen our students progress in their ability to work as a team, understand complex issues and create mature discussions around them. Furthermore, the 'Inspires' programme has created effective relationships between skilled external staff and our students to add further support with our aim to develop our students skill set.
Mr A. Kay - Sirius Academy West
We chose to work with Tigers Trust building on the impact that the previous Enterprise programme had with our students. There will always be students at our school with needs that align to Tigers Trust programmes particularly low confidence/self esteem and Pupil Premium students. The Inspires programme has been great as it has allowed us to make a bespoke set of activities for each year group engaged.

USW - Foundation Degree
The Tigers Trust now facilitates the delivery of the Community Football Coaching and Development Foundation Degree provided by the University of South Wales in partnership with the English Football League Trust.

Training Ground is a pilot project funded by the Youth Futures Foundation in partnership with the English Football League Trust.
The project is targeted at those not in education, employment, or training (NEET) aged 18-24. Experienced staff work with a small group of learners to develop their employability through completion of a range of work specific qualifications including health and safety, customer service and digital skills.
Learners also develop their mental and physical well-being through a range of practical activities, removing the constructs and sometimes barriers that a classroom environment can provide to purely focus on their well-being. Activities range from resilience walks, team building outdoor education days to footgolf.
Activities also help to inform learners of how to undertake tasks such as shop on a budget, cook healthy meals and manage their money more effectively.
The project culminates in a work placement which sees the learners enter a place of work of interest to them for a period of time to build skills, increase confidence and enhance aspirations to enter that work sector in the future.
The Trust is actively seeking a range of employers who would be open to supporting one of our learners with a work placement either on a more intensive basis e.g., two-week full/part time placement or more gradual approach e.g. one day per week for 10 weeks with an expectation to complete a minimum of 70 hours unpaid work.
