Alternative Provision

Would your students benefit from an alternative provision placement with the B. Braun Sheffield Sharks Basketball club? Would they love the chance to meet and work with professional athletes who serve as positive role models?

Based at the brand-new Canon Medical Arena we offer young people a chance to work with some of our professional players as they have an opportunity to study for accreditation in sports, enterprise, media, employability and healthy lifestyles through the AQA award unit scheme.

The program runs on Tuesdays from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm and is suitable for secondary age students who are referred by their school.

Morning sessions involve classroom based activities, including enterprise, lifestyle, creative and media based tasks. We try to offer 'real' work, related and work based activities where students are given opportunities to work on projects which have a tangible outcome, including researching, designing, producing, promoting, and selling a range of merchandise at a Sharks game.

The afternoon sessions offer a chance to engage with a range of coach sporting activities, including basketball - delivered by professionals in our state of the art facility!

For further information or to enquire about placing a student with the Sharks please we liaise with your Alternative Provision contact at Sheffield Council's Progressions Team, email or call the Sharks directly on 0114 2573180.

We look forward to working to support your students.
