These programmes embrace a wide variety of community involvement and they are delivered and received with the same energy and commitment today as when they started over 30 years ago.
Through the Arsenal Gap Year Programme, volunteers are given the opportunity for a truly unique experience gaining key employability and life skills whilst representing the Club in London and around the world. The basis of the programme follows this structure:
Stage 1 is based in London, at the Arsenal Hub, and lasts 5 months. This stage provides training and development opportunities for our 'Gappers' including coaching qualifications, First Aid, Safeguarding and TEFL courses. 'Gappers' are then placed within PE departments in local schools to build up their coaching experience.
Stage 2 gives our 'Gappers' the opportunity to travel abroad to coach at one of our community programmes around the world for a period of up to 4 months. 'Gappers' also have the choice to remain in London if they do not wish to travel abroad.
Stage 3 provides the chance for a second placement abroad or continuation in London.
Successful applicants onto the programme would need to be aged 18+ at the start of the programme. This is a development programme - a successful applicant will have a willingness to learn and a desire to improve leadership skills in order to gain most from the experience.
