Element Win New Contract with English Football League Trust

Element has worked with the English Football League Trust (EFLT) since our establishment to deliver the NCS programme. Ultimately, through NCS, EFLT want to deliver life-changing experiences for young people across the country. To date, they have worked with over 60,000 teenagers, helping them to realise their potential and reach their future goals. They support Element with the organisation and design of our NCS programme, along with additional assistance day-to-day for staff to support young people on the ground.

EFLT is a managing partner of the NCS programme and went through an intense tendering process to win the new contract. Element Society was involved in this tendering process, supporting EFLT with supporting evidence to how the Yorkshire/Humber region provides amazing opportunities for young people through NCS, under EFLT management.

Will Earp, Programmes Manager at Element said:

We really appreciate how closely EFLT works with us, as it provides us with the level of support necessary to run the NCS programme effectively. The training that EFLT provide our team keeps us up to speed with changes and most current information, but also the chance to develop our practice to engage with more young people in Sheffield. 

Through delivering NCS in partnership with EFLT, Element has provided over 2,500 teens in Sheffield the NCS experience, giving them the springboard into further endeavours like College, University or the world of work. Every programme that we run with young people, we see a massive change in how they have matured in up to 4 weeks of being with us, which is why we love delivering NCS.
