Rangers Charity Foundation at 12th EFDN Conference
With the 12th EFDN ‘#Morethanfootball’ Conference now less than a month away we continue with the introductions to the speakers at the event by focusing on Jamie Duncanson of Rangers FC. Jamie will present how Rangers Charity Foundation supports employability for the Hard-To-Reach.
The presentation will focus on 3 employability programmes:
- Ready for Employment: The ‘Ready for Employment’ programme focuses on 18+ adults who have various barriers to employment such as ex-offenders, entrenched worklessness, lone parents, additional learning needs.
- Programme of Wider Achievement: The targets of ‘Programme of Wider Achievement’ are school leaver age pupils who are disengaged from school and have multiple barriers such as care experienced, additional support needs, behavioural problems, low academic ability.
- Get Started with Rangers: The ‘Get Started with Rangers’ supports young people between the age of 16 to 25 who are in the NEET category (Not in Education, Employment or Training). The pupils have low self-esteem, have disengaged from school at an early age, and have low academic ability.
