Creative Sport & Leisure’s Newest Partnership with Bristol Bears

Having been recently promoted to the Premier League, Bristol Bears have had a lot of changes come their way - and through teaming up with us (CSL), they are now delivering the HITZ programme in the local area.

Working in partnership with Premiership Rugby we’re offering the chance to:

  • Achieve real qualifications
  • Prepare for work and gain experience for employment
  • Get involved with different sport activities and meet new friends
  • Get fit and explore health and nutrition
  • Improve your Maths and English skills


What is HITZ? – A Traineeship of course!

The HITZ programme is designed to help combat crime, anti-social behaviour and fragmented communities. By using rugby’s core values, HITZ helps people work towards and achieve their academic and career goals.

A Traineeship is technically just a programme which gives you the opportunity to get some work experience. We know how hard it can be out there to get a job, so to give you a head start we also offer relevant qualifications that can help get you into employment too. A Traineeship is an alternative to college and can lead to going onto an apprenticeship, work or further education.

Qualifications, workshops and training offered as part of the programme include: L1 Award in Customer Service / L1 Work Skills / L1 Sport & Active Leisure / Functional Skills English & Maths / Food Hygiene / Health & Safety.


HITZ Training Location

This programme will take place at Lockleaze Sports Centre.
Address: Bonnington Walk, Bristol BS7 9XF
