Playing for success an evaluation of the fourth year

E-mail Print

Playing for Success is a national initiative, established by the DfES in partnership with the FA Premier League, the Nationwide League and their clubs, and Local Education Authorities (LEA).


It aims to contribute to raising educational standards, especially in urban areas, by setting up Study Support Centres in professional football clubs and other sports venues. Centres are managed by experienced teachers. They use the medium and environment of sport to support work in literacy, numeracy and ICT. With a focus on addressing the needs of underachieving young people, mainly in Years 6 to 9 [10-14 years old], the initiative places a strong emphasis on improving pupils’ attitudes and motivation to learn.
