Alliance for Learning ‘choose to challenge’ through the FA’s Girls Football Super hub programme for International Women’s day 2021

The theme for this years International womens day is ‘choose to challenge’ and that is exactly what we are doing through our designation as a national FA Girls Football Schools Partnership super hub. Football is our national game and is enjoyed by millions of people across the Country, however, it is still seen as a very male dominated Sport. The FA Girls Football School Partnerships aim to give girls equal access to football in Schools by 2024. They have set the following two ambitious targets and we are determined to achieve them:

75% of schools offering football in the curriculum for girls by 2024

90% of schools offering football participation opportunities for girls by 2024

 

As a super hub we are leading the way with this work. We want to use football as a vehicle to educate, motivate and inspire girls to be the best that they can be across all areas of their life. Showing them that through dedication and hard work anything is possible and barriers can be broken.

As a super hub we will be collaborating with the Football Association and Youth Sport Trust to develop, test and pilot new curriculum content to: – Transform the PE learning experience for girls in primary schools, through high quality teacher training. – Modernise the PE curriculum for girls in secondary schools, through innovative programme training. We will also be delivering content around engaging girls and specific work to develop them into leaders through the FA’s whistlers course and the Youth Sport Award.

There are lots of opportunities for Schools to get involved with this work and we want to showcase this to you through our Super Hub conference to be held in the summer term. To register your interest or find out more please contact ​kstatham@aggs.bfet.uk
