This Apprenticeship programme offers you an exciting opportunity to earn while you learn. As an apprentice you will study on the job, building up valuable knowledge and skills and gaining qualifications. You will be paid a wage at the same time. Four days a week will be spent with an employer and one day per week you will be studying at college. Training in this way provides you with job matched qualifications and a direct link into employment.
The course is made up of a range of qualifications and you will learn about the sport and coaching, leadership, sport as a business, safeguarding and protecting young people and leading a healthy lifestyle. You will also study anatomy and physiology, injuries in sport and planning, delivering and evaluating a sport/leisure activity.
