Glasgow Warriors: Game On aims to work with 16-19 year olds across Glasgow and the West who are currently not in education, employment or training. Game On will work with a variety of partners, including Wooden Spoon and Rathbone and will be delivered by Glasgow Warriors Game On staff.
Game On will consist of Employability Fund training as well as exposure and opportunity to play rugby at the home of Glasgow Warriors. Coaches and players will interact with participants on a regular basis, ensuring that motivation and encouragement is maintained; and personal achievement is obtained. Glasgow Warriors will work to provide increased opportunity into the workforce, by linking to provide work placement and experience in a variety of industries.
With a view to progressing participants into positive pathways Game On will work with a variety of external stakeholders, to ensure the experience is as holistic as possible.
