Saints Foundation celebrate another Premier League Enterprise success


Saints Foundation were pleased to celebrate another batch of Premier League Enterprise students completing their 12-week programme today.

 Hosted at St Mary’s Stadium, the celebration event marks the successful completion of three months of work for the student, where they have been challenged to undertake various different football industry based challenges and workshops to achieve an accreditation in Business.
Saints Foundation’s iteration of the Premier League Enterprise programme uses Southampton Football Club as a case study, to demonstrate how businesses work on various different levels.
The programme works with students who struggle with conventional numeracy and literacy lessons, showing them different ways of learning to help boost their confidence.
Over the last 12 weeks, year 7 and 8 students from Oasis Academy Mayfield, Cantell School, Woodlands Community College, Redbridge Community College, Saint George Community College, Upper Shirley High School and Bitterne Park have been undertaking the challenge, culminating in the celebration event at St Mary’s.
Students spent the day trying to unravel the mystery behind the missing kit, as seen in Southampton FC’s recent #MadeForHeroes kit launch, before each school nominated their ‘Player of the Year’.
The next Premier League Enterprise programme will start in September 2017, with year 7’s from our Community Champions and partner schools the next to participate.
Aimé Gotte Saints Foundation’s Community Champion Coordinator enthused “this event was the culmination of a huge amount of hard work by the students and Saints Foundation’s Community Champions in their schools. The students were a credit to their schools today and should be proud of their achievements.”
