Centre Forward

An opportunity for young people with additional support needs to gain skills & qualifications and improve their wellbeing.

The Centre Forward programme is a 12-month course we deliver in partnership with Forth Valley College, funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.

The programme is designed specifically for young people aged 16-24 who have additional support needs and who wish to become more active whilst learning and developing their confidence.

Combined with certificated SQA units, learners will have a unique opportunity to take part in a range of on the pitch activities – encouraging practical learning and improving health/wellbeing at the same time. They will also benefit from real-life work placement opportunities.

Below is the entry requirements for our participants:

All participants are provided with Forth Valley College & Falkirk Foundation branded kit. During their time here their kit is to identify the participants as a member of the Falkirk Foundation.

The programme is delivered locally at Falkirk Stadium and also the college’s Falkirk campus.
