Football also reaches those young people who aren’t so easily accessed through traditional educational measures. Football training also strengthens young people’s social skills, preparing them for a new start in working life.
The concept uses the learning potential that playing offers, and links up motor, emotional and cognitive learning. Specific exercises in the training sessions allow young people to discover and develop key competencies at different levels (e.g. teamwork skills, independence, and social skills), which they will need to start a training course or job successfully.
The football training sessions also support the development of a trusting relationship between young people and the project team, which makes it easier for the latter to mediate between the participants and subsequent educational opportunities.
