HITZ is Premiership Rugby’s award-winning education and employability programme which works with over 2,000 14-18 year-olds across England every year. Using rugby’s core values of teamwork, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship to engage with young people not in education, training or employment (NEET). We aim to assist you back into education, training, apprenticeships and/or employment.

The HITZ Learning Academy offers a relaxed environment targeted at 16-18 year olds to improve their functional maths and English. Our aim is for you to develop valuable life skills and gain important qualifications alongside experience from work placements and employer-led sessions. The programme also offers essential enrichment and sporting activities which supports the development of the whole individual through not only improving their mental but physical wellbeing as well.

Participants in the HITZ programme regularly report an increase in resilience, self-confidence and aspiration as a result of their involvement, and over 70% go on to achieve a positive progression into further education, training or employment.

HITZ is funded by partners Land Rover, Comic Relief and Wooden Spoon.
