Evolve Academy has enjoyed a meaningful partnership with Fulham Football Club Foundation in a variety of ways since 2015. Together, we are working to increase students’ educational development and attainment, and, in line with FFCF’s aim, build better lives through sport.
The partnership provides opportunities for pupils to develop as a collective in the school community through group workshops, and as individuals via 1:1 mentoring support. Workshops cover a range of topics, including health, employability, crime prevention, image and self-esteem, and are delivered by the Foundation in collaboration with Personal Independence. Additional education opportunities such as the Enterprise Core Programme – delivered in partnership with the Premier League – challenge pupils to develop their business and enterprise skills, while earning an Entry Level 3 Business and Enterprise Qualification.
These programmes are complemented by Fulham FC Foundation’s Kicks programme, promoting social cohesion. These football, sport and workshop sessions are delivered on-site at Evolve Academy, with further opportunities for pupils to represent the Foundation in local fixtures and tournaments.
