Students who complete the programme will end up with transferable skills based around sport.
The aim is that at the end of the 15-week course, those who complete it join an apprenticeship programme with Hull KR, embark on other further training or use their new skills to find a job.
Dave Ellis, Hull Kingston Rovers Community Trust's head of education and inclusion, said: "It's very exciting times at the moment with Hull Kingston Rovers, especially with the trust.
"We are working hard to engage with young people of east Hull so they have an opportunity to gain new qualifications and skills that will help them find employment.
"We have a great environment to learn in and plenty of resources within the club to offer the young learners more skills and qualifications.
"With Hull College becoming our partner in this programme it means the quality of the training that the learners will receive will be outstanding."
Jo Hepi, head of school for sport, public services, travel and tourism at the college, says they have helped to develop the syllabus for the training programme.
She said: "This is an innovative training programme, which uses the power of sport to connect with students and encourage them to forge a career pathway within the industry.
"It provides a fantastic foundation for progressing on to further courses or into employment – we have a huge range of sport courses here at Hull College, which would provide ideal progression.
"The benefit for students is that not only do they receive a recognised qualification delivered by skilled tutors, they get the benefits of learning with a professional club and the use of their facilities."
The course begins on Monday, February 18, and lasts 15 weeks, with students attending three-and-a-half days per week.
