Cashback Off The Bench

Cashback Off The Bench is an employability programme delivered by St Mirren FC Charitable Foundation in partnership with the SPFL Trust. It’s funded by Cashback For Communities and aims to provide young adults aged between 16 and 24 with the qualifications and experience required to re-engage with education or enter employment. It runs every Tuesday 9:30am – 3:30pm in 12-week blocks. Each participant will work towards:

  • A SQA Level 4 Employability Award.
  • Scottish FA coaching badges delivered by qualified Scottish FA coaches.
  • Saltire Award, through a community volunteering project.

Cashback Off The Bench is a highly successful initiative for St Mirren FC Charitable Foundation that encourages young people to build confidence, qualifications and experience. Many young adults leave school without a plan or any knowledge of what they want to do, Cashback Off The Bench is a stepping-stone for them to reach their full potential towards a positive career path.

Cashback Off The Bench aligns with St Mirren FC Charitable Foundation’s mission to use movement as medicine, rebuilding more resourceful and resilient communities.
