How We Help You Getting into Work Premier League Works Cardiff City FC Foundation has developed a partnership with HMP Parc in Bridgend, allowing 20 young people between 18-25 years of age an opportunity to complete in the programme every year. The aim is to work collectively to shape and deliver a programme as a support mechanism for offenders, in readiness for their resettlement from custody. The theme of employability and interpersonal skills are intertwined throughout the course content as a means of supporting and mentoring the participants to move closer to the job market, whilst instilling confidence to work towards overcoming potential barriers associated with custodial sentences. The Foundation provides opportunities for participants to undertake qualifications, take up work placements within the Prison as well as designing and participating in a community action project which contributes towards developing fundamental skills such as team work and communication. Premier League Works uses the power of football clubs and the Premier League to engage young people who are not involved in education, training or employment. The programme is delivered by 24 Football Clubs in partnership with the Professional Footballers Association and the Prince’s Trust and provides young people with support to develop their personal and social skills giving them the confidence and the experience they need to make a positive transition back into education, access training or gain meaningful employment. The programme aligns to a person-centred approach which is reflected through the flexibility and ability to modify course content to provide a relevant and worthwhile experience to work towards positive outcomes such as: Realising Potential Developing Skills Creating Opportunities Inspiring Ambition Making Young People More Employable Reducing the Likelihood of Reoffending The impact of the programme can be identified by an increased number of Prisoners contacting the Foundation post release for advice regarding employment and/or volunteering opportunities which encompasses the entire purpose of Premier League Works.
