Young people with learning disabilities empowered to become football coaches

Young people with learning disabilities are jumping at the chance to become sports leaders and FA-accredited football coaches, thanks to a scheme run in conjunction with a Premier League football club. The Options Academy programme sees instructors from the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation coaching individuals from CMG, a care provider for people with learning disabilities and associated complex needs. The scheme gives trainees the opportunity to gain the qualifications necessary to gain employment in the sport and leisure industry, and also supports them to develop their CVs. Once a week, trainees travel from around the country to Tottenham Hotspur’s learning zone
