Next Recruiting: 2023

The current programme provides apprentices full time employment with a recognised sporting or youth based employer, and a wage, whilst also working towards the Level 2 Community Activator Coach qualification – plus a whole host of additional learning opportunities. In addition, whilst employed directly by one organisation, there is also access to a range of events, training opportunities and experiences through the other supportive partners.

Coach Core Essex represents a truly county wide project, with employers from all corners of Essex working collaboratively to provide opportunities to our apprentices in gymnastics, swimming, football, cricket and more.

This programme is made possible through our partnership with BT Sport’s Supporters Club. Coach Core ambassadors Max Whitlock (Olympic gold medallist) and his high-level GB gymnastics coach, Scott Hann, are both heavily involved in the Essex programme.

The employers for the current Coach Core Essex programme are: West Ham Foundation, Colchester United in the Community, Sport for Confidence, South Essex Gymnastics, Brentwood Leisure Trust, Prosports Solutions, Achievement Though Football, Active Essex Foundation, Canvey Island Youth Project and Motivated Minds. The programme is administered by Active Essex.
