Football Scores with Adult Learning


Adult literacy, language and numeracy skills are being addressed by a new initiative between ten premier league and football league clubs and the government.

The project aims to target football fans who are weak in these areas, and encourage them to improve through sport themed activities.

The skills training is geared specifically towards football fans, teaching literacy by analysing commentary or creating match reports, and learning maths by comprehending transfer fees.

Manchester United, Liverpool, Newcastle United, Everton, Charlton Athletic, Wigan Athletic, and football league teams, Leicester City, Brighton and Hove Albion, Norwich City and Bristol City are all supporting the initiative.

Skills Minister Phil Hope said: “We want to use the popularity of football to encourage adults to improve their skills and transform their lives both at home and at work. Although over one and a quarter million people have returned to learning and gained a qualification under our Skills for Life campaign, there are still many more people who could benefit.”

To take part in a free adult literacy or numeracy course, call T:0800 100 900 to register.
