Former RFL Chief Executive Nigel Wood said of Vince Karalius that his achievements marked him out as “one of the best players of his generation who approached the game with fierce determination and total commitment”. With extraordinary leadership and empathy Karalius was renowned for developing disengaged teenagers through robust training regimes and rewarding through recognition! The Karalius Foundation is established by Gemma Quantrill, his beloved granddaughter, with the view to continuing his efforts through the delivery of quality education to disengaged teenagers. The legend’s legacy lives on!
The Karalius Foundation will deliver Vince’s legacy through the vision, leadership and professional experience of Gemma, who has spent over 13 years working across educational settings working with those deemed hardest to reach. KF is responding to market need and is committed to the development and delivery of a high-quality, inclusive and innovative curriculum which has been designed specifically to target disengaged pupils. The Foundation will offer rich experiences that support positive destinations for learners into further education, apprenticeships and employment.
