Giving athletes the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence that they require for a dual-career alongside their sporting career.
Life Skills is an extension of PSN’s Player Care Network, that engages directly with young professional athletes through the delivery of educational workshops and employability opportunities, across a range of topics, to support athletes off the pitch.
With the primary focus of athletes to forge a professional career in their sport, Life Skills is a tailored programme which complements athletes’ existing education curriculums. The initiative guides young athletes through their personal and professional development journey ensuring they are developing the skills, knowledge and confidence they require for dual career opportunities and their career after sport.
In partnership with some of the biggest brands in the world, such as Knight Frank, Guild Esports, Sky, TikTok and Toni & Guy, athletes will have the opportunity to engage in job placements to gain real life, hands on experience.
