Traineeships

16 – 24 and looking for work?  How about having MFC Foundation in your corner?

We will be restarting our fantastic Traineeship scheme in September and some places are still available.

We offer 1-2-1 and group support from our expert employment coaches, a dedicated tutor to help improve your functional skills and offer access to our extensive range of employer partners for work experience and potential vacancies.

Whether you want to work in sport, care, security, admin, engineering, retail or hospitality – or even if you have no idea what you want to do yet, we can help.

This is an active course where we want to spend as much time as possible outside of the training room.

This will include opportunities for free sport sessions with our Foundation coaches and the chance to work as a team supporting your local community.

An Ultra Run For MFC Foundation – An Ultra Special Memory

ON Saturday morning, June 19th 2021, Lisa Hay will set off from Carlisle to complete The Wall, a seventy mile endurance run that will end on Newcastle Quayside at 9am on Sunday morning. 

Lisa will be running for an incredible 26 hours to raise money for MFC Foundation in memory of her friend Lee Butcher, a Boro season ticket holder and lifelong fan.

Lee, a father of two, was due to become a granddad before he tragically lost his life at just 41 years of age.

Lisa described Lee as a fun loving, big hearted man (and wind-up merchant!) who had been a huge support to her on her previous runs.  As a mental health nurse Lisa is very aware of the challenges life brings to people on a day to day basis, she believes that being active is a key part to maintaining good mental health and this has motivated her to complete the London Marathon, The Great North Run and a 35 mile Edinburgh “Rat Race”.

Alongside a sky dive this running has raised thousands for charities including Cystic Fibrosis, Mind and the Mr Men children’s charity.

Lisa read about the work of the Foundation in the newspapers and felt that raising money for the charity would be a fitting tribute for Lee. If you would like to support Lisa please visit her just giving page:
