What is Premier Skills?

Premier Skills is a partnership between the Premier League and the British Council which uses football as a tool to engage with and develop the skills of young people.

How does Premier Skills work? 

  • Premier League club coaches (and local coach educators) provide face-to-face training for grassroots coaches and referees, giving them the skills and support to develop their own community football projects.
  • The programme works with local partners to set up and support community projects that address specific needs and engage marginalised or at risk youth through regular football sessions.
  • Teachers and learners of English are provided with a range of football-based learning materials, accessed through face-to-face training and digitally, including a dedicated Premier Skills website.
