Community team to run in-school workshops
Huddersfield Town’s Football in the Community department will run a programme of in-school workshops to help local youngsters identify their career goals in early 2013.
This is part of a national programme called ‘What’s Your Goal?’, run by Football League sponsor npower, to give students across the country the chance to experience work life in the football industry.
As part of the in-school session run by Huddersfield Town, local youngsters will be shown how to complete an application form and encouraged to apply for one of five sought after four-day work experience placements at the Club, 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 Huddersfield Town is March 1 2013.
Clare McDougall, Head of Community and Education for npower, comments, “Clubs have a real range of exciting roles on offer; Community Coach, Public Relations Manager and Club Shop Manager to Sports Therapist, Stadium Manager and Groundsman 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 Huddersfield Town on 01484 484189 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
