Meet the apprentices: Northumberland, Tyne & Wear

Check out this video exploring how our apprentices in the current Northumberland, Tyne & Wear are benefitting from the programme.

By James Burbidge · 16th June 2022

In 2019 we launched our first programme in Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and it has gone from strength to strength, thanks in no small part to our partnership with Rise and the efforts of Learning Coach Wasim Collins.

“Rise and Wasim have taken the Coach Core model and shaped it round local strategy and needs. It’s changed the lives of nearly 50 young apprentices and countless thousands of participants in the areas that need positive sport and physical activity the most.”

– Gary Laybourne, Coach Core CEO

Take a look at this video, captured on a recent education day, to find out how the programme is benefitting the current cohort:
