Zejtun Nursery head-coach participates in training course in Portugal

Zejtun Corinthians Youth Nursery Director of Youth Coaching Jason Bartolo last week represented the Nursery and Malta in a training course held by the Erasmus+ National Agency in Chaves, Portugal.

The five-day programme focused on the important themes of ‘Social Inclusion and Intercultural learning through Sports’ and was supported by the EUPA, the Maltese National Agency of EU Programmes.

The course aimed to encourage the use of sport as a tool to enhance intercultural involvement and promote social inclusion, and explored methods to develop competences in the social inclusion area. This experience provided the Nursery with further networking possibilities of other Erasmus+ projects for the near future in various European countries and enhanced the knowledge of the Nursery technical staff in the social benefits of grassroots football.
