Premier League Inspires

PREMIER League Inspires is an education programme, newly introduced in 2019, developed by The Premier League and professional football clubs.

The programme is aimed at young people aged between 11-25 and brings together learnings from previous PL programmes such as PL Enterprise and PL Works, as well as the Prince’s Trust Achieve course and Sports Leadership qualifications.

The challenges presented today evolve at pace, with young people, more than ever before, experiencing mental health issues, together with social, emotional and personal difficulties. Teachers and practitioners in secondary schools and the education sector face multiple pressures and each school has differing priorities, including an approach to pastoral care, behaviour management and emotional support.

The Premier League Inspires programme uses the appeal of the Premier League and Middlesbrough Football Club to support local 11-16 year olds who are marginalised or at risk of not reaching their potential; supporting them as they move through the education system and early adulthood.
