Football plan for college

DONCASTER College has joined a scheme which aims to help young migrant men back into education through football.

The project is called Hattrick and the idea is to use the potential they show on the football pitch to help them re-enter education and vocational training and improve their social integration and career prospects.

The International Department at the college has an EU grant to work on the project. It is piloting the training programme with its Foundation Studies students.

Carole Colvin, assistant director of foundation studies said: "Hattrick is a fantastic training programme that uses the well loved medium of football to re-engage young learners, who have found themselves not in employment, education or training."
