Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose joined participant Josh Ottley at one of Tottenham Hotspur FC Foundation’s Community Pathways to Employment sessions for the club’s BT Sport short film.
Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose takes part in BT Sport’s new short film around the Premier League and BT disability programme. The film, which will first air in BT Sport Score on Saturday 4 February, looks at the disability provision that Tottenham Hotspur FC Foundation’s will be running thanks to this new three-year programme.
Rose heads to Waltham Forrest College to take part in the one of the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation’s Pathway to Employment sessions, which assists disabled members of the community in gaining the necessary skills needed to get into work.
Twenty-three year old Josh Ottley started attending the Pathway to Employment sessions in early 2016 and after three months working with the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation staff, working on his self-esteem and confidence, gained employment as a porter at nearby Whipps Cross University Hospital.
The award-winning BT Sport Films team is producing and broadcasting short films on the individuals and storylines involved in the Premier League and BT Disability programme, raising the profile of the project and clubs’ broader inclusion work to millions of people.
Following an independent funding application assessment process, successful Premier League clubs will employ a dedicated Disability Officer responsible for co-ordinating the programme and promoting inclusion.
Disability Officers will work with local agencies to amplify existing work and deliver programmes that engage disabled people through sport. Sport will be used to provide a range of opportunities such as volunteering, education, employability, and apprenticeships.
