Our HITZ programme lasts from
15-weeks to 2-years depending on the location and is split into three areas:
You’ll spend around
half of your week working towards your qualification, which will be a Level 1
or 2 in Employability, or Level 1, 2 or 3 in Sport – depending on your location
and the offer we have in that area.
In addition, you’ll
have Maths and English sessions to help you work towards your Functional Skills
of GCSE qualifications (unless you have already achieved these).
Our specialist team
will work with you to identify the industries you may want to work in (it
definitely doesn’t have to be sport!) and help find local employers that can
offer work experience opportunities.
You’ll also have
plenty of opportunities to work in our rugby stadiums in various roles
including, Club shops, hospitality, ground staff, matchday experiences etc.
This is where we
really help you become part of our #HITZFamily! We’ll help you develop all the
skills you need for your future:
Work skills: CV
workshops, mock interviews with local employers, 1:1 support from our staff.
Life skills: Day trips
to help you develop important life skills and make new friends.
You’ll meet some of our guest speakers who are specialists in areas such as
personal finances, healthy lifestyles and mental health.
