Our ongoing work via Premier Skills in China now for many years has enabled us to support in creating positive social change. Sports transcends language and provides a great simple practical platform, a way of bringing people together and building trust. Whilst building trust in people in turn contributes to wider efforts aimed at building cohesion, inclusion, stability and prosperity.
Whilst we all know sport in isolation cannot solve all of the world’s problems, a well-designed, values driven sports programme can positively help in many ways. Through Premier Skills in China we have delivered face to face training since 2009 ensuring more players take part, enjoy, learn and achieve. Whilst developing the professional capacity of those teaching the game meaning everyone whether playing or delivering feels valued and confident to achieve.
Premier Skills has achieved huge impact in China with well over 1000 coaches trained and nearly 10,000 young people reached and it's been great that we have been a part of its huge success.
