Off the Bench

Posted: Monday 25 April 2022

Off the Bench is a 12-week, one day a week, programme aimed towards 16–24 year olds who are not currently in work or education and are keen to take the next steps towards their future.

Young people, aged 16-24, will work towards: 

• Three different SQA certificates to help with employability 
• Scottish FA coaching badges delivered by qualified Scottish FA coaches 
• Saltire Award, through a community volunteering project 

All participants will receive a free lunch every week, an exclusive Motherwell FC x Off the Bench kit and a laptop which they can use to develop their skills and plan their next steps. Travel is also provided if needed.

It started last week but we still have places left. Its every Tuesday from 10am-3:30pm for 12 weeks.

It is a fantastic programme , and the young people get to go on the Astro the majority of the weeks for a kick about with either out coaches or Andy Thompson who is a former footballer and ex assistant manager coach for the Scotland women’s team.

If the young people want to come along, I’m more than happy to get them over on Monday and show them around so that they feel more comfortable and at ease with coming this Tuesday.

Below is also a link to the last cohort video.
