HITZ Programme


Inspiring Communities Through Rugby 

Tackling some of the greatest challenges facing young people today - unemployment, crime and disillusionment - Exeter Chiefs is helping to change the lives of young people locally by delivering the award-winning Hitz programme here at Sandy Park. 

Delivered nationally by Premiership Rugby and funded by partners Barclays, Comic Relief, Land Rover and Wooden Spoon, HITZ uses the core values of rugby: team work, respect, enjoyment, discipline and sportsmanship to increase young people’s resilience, self-reliance and confidence. 

Prospect Training Services provide inspiring individualised training plans to educate those on the Exeter Chiefs Hitz Programme. 

Our programmes are specifically designed to provide 16-19 year old NEETs (not in education, employment or training) with the skills they need to get back into education, vocational training, apprenticeships and employment with training. 

HITZ has a 90% success rate and 70% progression rate showing the work we are doing is changing lives. Together through support from our fantastic partners, training provider and the amazing facilities at Sandy Park, the Exeter Chief’s Hitz Programme can offer a truly amazing experience. 

The course offers the following qualifications: 

• BTEC Level 1 in Sports and Active Leisure 

• Functional Skills and GCSE Maths and English

• Level 1 Diploma in Work Skills 

It is a unique 34-week programme that is roll on, roll off based at Sandy Park. We aim to have a 50% split of theory and practical work outside the classroom. Each learner will take part in weekly and monthly reviews to analyse their behaviour, attendance and academic performance so goals can be set and achieved.
