Education Programme

Inspiration & Motivation + Hard Work = Achievement

At Wasps we realise how important it is for young people to make healthy lifestyle choices and develop into responsible citizens. We also understand that rugby is unique in its ability to reach out to young people. We offer a range of educational opportunities for young people in our community. From educating young people on numeracy skills to improving confidence, life-skills and employability - our programmes are innovative and inspiring - everything you would expect from Wasps.

Delivered as part of the Education Pillar of Activity of the Wasps Community Foundation

Our current range of Education Programmes are focused towards schools, colleges, universities, uniformed organisations and grassroots sports clubs.
