Dearne Valley College (DVC) has agreed a deal with Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme.
During July and August 2012, DVC will be working in partnership with The Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme to offer short Leadership and Coaching programmes for young people interested in gaining employment in the Leisure Service Industries.
The students lucky enough to be selected for the programme will study a number of short modules combined with a work experience package offered by the Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme.
The programme is designed to be very practical and experiential learning will be at the heart of this package. It is expected that all successful learners will be offered a full-time place at the Wath-based College where they will be entitled to a £10.00 per week training allowance based upon 100% attendance.
Sam Meadows, DVC Programme Area Manager for Sport and Physical Recreation, commented:
“This is a very exciting partnership, offering a great opportunity to get involved with a top local club and enjoy learning to lead and coach football sessions in the Dearne Valley. On successful completion of the course students will be ready to progress into the leadership academy where they can enjoy further opportunities to become a sports coach”.
John Williams, Head of Education at Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme, commented:
“We are delighted to have a partnership with Dearne Valley College; this will hopefully help with recruitment for the College and also interact with the local community”.
Guest Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme coaches will support the practical elements of some sessions and work placement opportunities will be on offer.
