Player Welfare/Education

PLAYER WELFARE/EDUCATION

title

Here at the Giants we have a strong focus on producing players who have a holistic approach to their time as Super League players. We have a focus on using their time to ensure that whenever a player transitions into retirement or changing clubs, they are prepared for what challenges they are about to face next.

Andy Jordan, the Giants Player Welfare and Education Manager is here to provide a vast range of opportunities for the full playing roster at the club. The key aspects are: education provision, specific workshops and work experience. Alongside this, he is in place to ensure the welfare of the playing squad is a key focus and priority.

At the club we have an excellent partnership with the Kirklees Construction Skills Academy (KCSA), these offer a vast array of vocational courses, and these include: plastering, electrical engineering, brickwork, motor mechanics and many more.

We also make the most of the RFL partnership with FitUK for access to personal training courses and we are about to start working with the University of Huddersfield Business School to access the vast array of business courses on offer.
