Five opportunities for youngsters to do placements with CityExeter City's Football in the Community Trust (FITC) is launching a programme of in-school workshops to help local youngsters identify their career goals.
This is part of a national programme called ‘What’s Your Goal?’ run by the Football League sponsor, npower, to give students across the country the chance to experience working life in the football industry.
As part of the in-school sessions, run by the FITC, local youngsters will be shown how to complete an application form and encouraged to apply for one of the five sought after four-day work experience placements at the Football in the Community and Exeter City FC, which will take place during the 2013 Easter Holidays.
The career focused lessons are suitable for Year 10 and 11 students and will be taking place between now until mid-February next year. The closing date to apply for work experience at FITC is 1st March 2013.
Clare McDougall, Head of Community and Education for npower, says, “Clubs have a real range of exciting roles on offer: Community Coaches, Groundsman, Sports Therapist, Club Shop Manager and Head of Community, to name just a few. So there’s a real opportunity for youngsters to get a valuable insight into what it ‘s like to work in the world of football.”
Any local schools interested in receiving a careers session from the club should contact Marcus Pritchard on 07816 779244 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
