LifeSkills are delighted to have become the official education partner of Rotherham United.

Steve Coakley, Commercial Director said: "We have been in dialogue for quite some time about working together and launching a partnership. We genuinely feel that by doing so we can help deliver the chance for people to improve their skill sets and subsequent opportunities to realise, or even improve, their potential.

Paul Douglas, the club's Chief Operating officer added: "At a time of rising local unemployment LifeSkills are providing a much needed opportunity for young people to get on the employment ladder through effective training. Their methods are tried and tested and we will be working closely with them and local employers to ensure as many youngsters as possible have access to this opportunity. This area has had more of its fair share of unemployment and the social problems that come with it and we were very keen to form this official partnership with LifeSkills to help raise the opportunities available to people of Rotherham."

Over the coming weeks and months there will be regular updates through the club's media channels about the new partnership's joint initiatives with information for both local businesses and local youngsters about how to get involved.

Spencer Fearn, Managing Director of LifeSkills said: "We are delighted to be recognised as an official education partner of Rotherham United and look forward to building a strong partnership that will provide some excellent opportunities for the young people of Rotherham."

“It's great knowing the training programme in place has been created just for us. Because LifeSkills really listened to our needs, we've got a course that delivers - and that's flexible enough not to get in the way of our everyday business.”
