The Programme of Wider Achievement
The Programme of Wider Achievement (POWA) was designed to support the city’s secondary school pupils who have challenging and chaotic backgrounds such as; care experienced, offenders, additional support needs and behavioural needs. A high percentage of the participants are disengaged or have completely defected from school and the Foundation offers educational and employability support through POWA which allows the pupils to attain accredited qualifications equivalent to their school level but also gain a variety of live vocational and sector work experience enhancing their employability pathway using the power of football.
