Key Objectives:

Internationally the programme has a number of targeted deliverables that each programme is looking to achieve:

  • Aim to influence governments and sports bodies in participating countries to use the power of football and sport to deliver educational and social outcomes.

  • Delivering training and support for people to become community coaches.

  • Providing access to skills (including English language and sport coaching) to those who wouldn't have the opportunity otherwise, improving their life chances.

  • A progressive programme building capacity and create networks of community coaches who will be able to use the power of football to support health, education, social inclusion and equalities.

Delivery Model:

Country selection into the programme depends on a number of factors ranging from the interest in the Premier League; interest to learning English; relevance of the UK's football in the community model; the UK and in country government strategic priorities.

 

The Premier League has a long-held commitment to invest in community and education programmes in the UK. With the global success of the Premier League, the opportunity exists to widen the positive impact of their domestic community programmes onto an International scale. Whilst the British Council has a purpose to connect people in the UK to people in other countries and as an organisation they find football as a great way to achieve that goal.

Apart from the online English learning a high proportion of Premier Skills is delivered as a face to face training programme targeting community coaching, community development, refereeing and coach education. Through helping to create community networks with the knock on positive effect of bringing high quality football activities to thousands of young people in the host countries.
