HITZ Learning Academy
HITZ is Premiership Rugby’s award-winning education and employability programme which, with the help of its funders Land Rover, Wooden Spoon and Comic Relief, works with more than 2,000 14-18-year olds across England every year, and is delivered nationally by England’s 13 professional rugby clubs.
HITZ uses the core values of rugby, alongside other sporting and extracurricular opportunities to increase young people’s resilience, self-confidence and long-term employability.
HITZ provides learners with the opportunity to gain key qualifications in Maths and English, as well as BTECs in Sport and Active Leisure. The BTEC-based education programme is delivered by our education providers, SCL, an approved BTEC centre. Harlequins Foundation will deliver the HITZ Learning Academy in partnership with SCL
