Secondary education, training and careers
We believe our role in supporting young people goes far beyond football. We believe that learning, both formal and informal, should be for life.
Whether it’s through developing life skills and personal attainment, providing on the job training through our employability, training and apprenticeship programmes, or developing young people as a whole through our football and education college programme.
We provide education, personal development and employability opportunities for young people and young adults at all stages of their learning journey.

What does this activity mean to me?
I enjoyed meeting everyone on the traineeship and the people that were helping us on the traineeship, it made the whole experience more enjoyable and more beneficial at getting me ready for starting my new job.
You can see clearly that the work that you are doing is changing lives in so many ways. Therefore, if you ever have one of those days when the frustrations of the moment are a distraction .... rest assured you are making a significant difference. I simply want to thank you for the change that you and your team continue to develop in our son.
This course was exactly what he wanted. It has been a revelation, really. Thank you very much.
I love that I have learnt something that will help my future in every Thursday lesson with Fulham. They make us feel comfortable and confident that we can achieve anything we want in the future.
The Inspires programme has had a fantastic impact on the young people in our school. It has given some of our young people the opportunity to improve their skills in a number of different areas whilst teaching them about teamwork and how to communicate with both peers and professionals.
The thing I like about PL Inspires is that they inspire me through workshops, talking about mental health, and help making us feel confident to do things by ourselves (presenting things and Entrepreneur Skills).
I like the fact that we actually do what we say we are going to do, for example, practicing for a presentation, to then preform it to a panel of judges (as part of our social action project).
We get to learn different stuff like business, how the world works and how to help others. It also helps me in my other lessons as we learn stuff that will help us with our futures.
The Fulham staff have been excellent and had a very positive impact on the boys they worked with. Richard and Richmond have done an excellent job of supporting the specific needs of our boys for example organising a vaping/ drugs workshop and careers talk.
The programme has had a hugely positive effect on the behaviour and wellbeing of our students. It has helped allow the students to understand the importance of taking responsibility for their actions as well as helping them to learn from the mistakes that they make.
Students participating in the programme have been very enthusiastic about it and have looked forward to attending the sessions each week. They have developed their confidence and teamwork skills through participation of the programme. Feedback from parents has also been that their children have enjoyed the programme and that they have seen a change in attitude at home.
I like that I can work with new people and progress for my future and that they are nice people you can rely on and talk to.
