Premier Skills IEP 2022 launched in Johannesburg

Johannesburg, 21 April 2022

Today we saw the launch of the Premiers Skills IEP 2022 Programme in Johannesburg.

After a two-year disruption due to Covid 19, delivery of this impactful programme is being resumed in Johannesburg.

Celebrating the launch of the Johannesburg programme, selected learners for the programme from the two participating schools were hosted by PSL club SuperSport United.

Delivered by the British Council, this Premier League initiative uses Professional clubs as an education model for learners.

In keeping with the programme’s approach of using football as a tool to engage with and develop the skills of young people, the students were addressed by key members of SuperSport United’s team, both on and off the field.

The students got an opportunity to learn more about what goes into running a successful club and how different areas of business, marketing and medical expertise are integrated into the management of a club.

The learners also got an opportunity to meet the first team and tour the club’s training facility.

The following topics were covered during the event:

  • Club Operations & Financial Management – Dominic Busschau
  • Club Marketing & CSI Department – Coltrane Munyai
  • Social Media – Brian Moshoeshoe
  • Academy Department – Muziwakhe Dladla
  • Medical Department [1st Team Physio & Exercise Scientist] – Bafana Sihlali & Innocent Mchunu
  • Coaching Department [1st Team Head Coach & Goalkeeper Coach] – Andre Arendse & Grant Johnson

Forwardzone is proud to continue our participation as an activation partner of the launch event and to facilitate the relationship between SuperSport United and the Premier Skills Programme.
