2015 RUGBY WORLD CUP TO INSPIRE YOUNGSTERS AND BOOST JOB PROSPECTS

Young people struggling to find work had the opportunity to boost their job prospects thanks to a Rugby World Cup 2015 inspired project set up by Exeter City Council and Exeter and the Heart of Devon, Employability and Skills Board.

This two-week REEP programme usesd sport to inspire 16-24 year olds, giving them new life skills and confidence to help them progress into the work place, an apprenticeship or further training.

Motiv-8sw have run similar initiatives in other parts of the UK and are delighted to bring this programme to the South West.

“This programme was extremely successful in helping young people discover what they want to do with their life and it empowers them to actually turn their thinking into action”

Phil Sampson, Director, Motiv-8sw

The programme saw selected young people engage in a practical and experiential way of learning which uses modern and well proven performance coaching techniques. It helped with self-esteem, self-confidence, motivation, communication and presentation skills, team work, goal setting and action planning and defining future vision and aspirations.

Cllr Rosie Denham, Exeter City Council’s Lead Councillor for Economy and Culture, has said:

“Sport can be a fantastic motivator which is why we’re focusing on supporting young people who have struggled to take that first step on their career ladder, building their confidence, skills and business know how”.
