To develop programmes and provide opportunities to enhance the education and training needs of the community
With unemployment figures being high generally across the UK and with over 200,000 16-24 year old NEETS (those not in education, employment or training) we are committed to the development and delivery of programmes and offering opportunities to the wider region. We offer qualifications, apprenticeships and volunteering opportunities that will act as a pathway into employment.
We also work with schools and offer programmes that assist with the National Curriculum. These sessions can be delivered in schools but we prefer to deliver programmes in our classroom at Old Trafford that allows us to offer a unique environment for learning.
Education Without Boundaries
LCCC Foundation is giving Primary schools the opportunity to bring their Year 5 and 6 pupils to Emirates Old Trafford for a day of Education and Cricket.
There are four strands to the Education Without Boundaries programme: Lanky’s Literacy Club, Lanky’s Numbers Game, Lanky’s lesson in Fair Play and Lanky the Reporter. The Lanky inspired activities will give children the chance to practice their fundamental skills in a fun way as well as play cricket in the Indoor Cricket Centre. Whether it is a game of LCCC Top Trumps or a LankSky Sports News Report the children will learn whilst discovering the wonderful world of cricket. Much of the cricket themed resources will be delivered through the use of iPads. Contact Ian Seddon, Education Manager for more information email@example.com

Lanky’s Guide to a Healthy Heart
The “Lanky’s Guide to a Healthy Heart” project aims to tackle high health inequalities in the Trafford area by instilling heart-healthy lifestyle habits at a young age, encouraging children to acquire the knowledge, attitudes and behaviour that lead to healthy lifestyle choices.
Sessions take place at Lancashire County Cricket Club and include a fun and interactive presentation around the heart,
good and bad fats, diet, exercise and salt. The children attending also take part in a 1hour Kwik Cricket activity session and make a Fruit Kebab.
A brochure is being produced at the end of the project featuring the pupils’ work and useful tips which will be given out on match days and schools will also be taking part in a pedometer competition to win a LCCC signed cricket bat.
The project so far has been a great success.

Working with identified local children the project used the power of cricket and the draw of LCCC to help develop the literacy and numeracy skills of 20 young people moving from Year 6 into Year 7, helping to facilitate a smoother transition into secondary school.
Over the week the students received high quality focussed Maths and English tuition from The Tutor Trust, a not-for-profit education charity based in Manchester, utilising a wide range of fun and engaging educational activities set against the inspirational backdrop of Emirates Old Trafford. Students also got the opportunity to hone their cricket skills using the same training facilities as LCCC players and were invited to attend Lancashire’s YB40 game against the Derbyshire Falcons.
The Summer School was funded by the Department for Education as part of a nationwide initiative open to eligible schools that have Ever6 free school meal pupils or looked-after children pupils.
The Foundation will look to partner up with the Tutor Trust and local secondary schools again over the summer of 2014 to deliver further Summer School programmes.

LCCC Foundation worked in partnership with Trafford College, Job Centre Plus, Trafford Council and the National Careers Service to provide local Trafford residents aged 18-25 with the relevant skills and training to support them back into the jobs market.
“The Big Hit” pre-employment programme piloted at Emirates Old Trafford provided participants, identified through Job Centre Plus, with a range of qualifications, skills and experience before putting them in front of real employers with real job vacancies.
The project used the power of cricket and the draw of Lancashire County Cricket Club to help develop teamwork, career planning, and communication & presentation skills through a series of fun and engaging activities designed to improve each participant’s self-awareness, self-confidence and self-esteem.
The project was a huge success with a third of all participants who took part in the programme securing job roles after being out of work for 6 months or more.
The Foundation are currently liaising with all partners involved to plan a regular pre-employment programme for delivery in 2014.
