Rugby Futures

During March, students who attend Endeavour at Prior Pursglove College were selected to attend a 6 session course called Rugby Futures.

Rugby Futures is a programme facilitated by the Newcastle Falcons and funded and supported by Electricity North East as a further commitment to the development of the area in and around Teesworks, and working with the Teesworks Skills Academy to further support the communities alongside the growth of the area.

The aim of the programme was to build on the `Values needed for the world of work`.

The coaches facilitated sessions on how the values you use in sport can be linked with the values you need in work and equipped our students with essential personal characteristics that build relationships based on trust, self-awareness, communication, resilience, and emotional intelligence, all of which are crucial for success in any area of life.

These brilliant sessions were led by Olympian Chris Cook, Lysa Morrison and Jake Vandervelde and the positive impact on our students was phenomenal as you will see from the following video:

Big thanks to the Rugby Futures and everyone involved in making this a wonderful experience for our students.


Due to the success of this programme we hope to run a second round very shortly, watch this space…
