Sithandizingane youth invited to participate in British Premier Skills training programme
SACBC AIDS Office was invited by the British Council to take part in their skills development program at Pretoria University Sports Centre for young people. One of our partner organisations in Tsakane, Sithandizingane, sent 18 children both boys and girls to take part in this event.
Since the British premier skills program began in 2007, 2,300 coaches and referees have been trained, who in turn have reached a further 500,000 young people. 6,000 teachers have received training in the use of the Premier Skills English materials.
Through Premier Skills, young people, including the most vulnerable in society, are given opportunities to become better integrated into their local communities, to develop their skills for employability and raise their self-esteem.
Teachers and learners of English are given free, compelling learning materials, drawing on football-based content from the most exciting football league in the world.
