New apprenticeship programme in partnership with England Boxing

Coach Core are pleased to announce we are working with England Boxing to help them deliver 10 new Community Boxing Apprenticeship roles.

By James Burbidge · 12th May 2022

In a new partnership, Coach Core are working directly with the national governing body of boxing, England Boxing, to help them deliver 10 brand new Community Boxing Apprenticeship roles across the country. These roles have been created to build on the excitement and interest in the sport generated by the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

This national programme marks a change to our usual ‘consortium’ approach where we bring together a group of employers in a single location, and it opens up new possibilities for us to help young people facing challenge throughout the country.

The programme has been made possible thanks to support from Sport England’s Birmingham 2022 Sport Participation, Innovation and Digital Fund.

The apprentices will receive their educational development from our partners Lifetime Training, and will deliver community-based engagement events in partnership with England Boxing-affiliated clubs, opening up pathways for sustained participation in the sport.

“The introduction of apprenticeships provides a fantastic opportunity for us to diversify our workforce and learn from and understand the views of young people relevant to our key demographic, whilst also bolstering our workforce to support our clubs and members to grow the sport.”

England Boxing’s Head of Community Development, Charlie Ford

“We are truly excited to be working with England Boxing to showcase how apprenticeships can support long term, diverse workforce strategies whilst also providing even greater opportunities in the local community.
We are particularly excited about our partnership with England Boxing given both organisations’ commitment to supporting young people facing challenging circumstances and using this fantastic sport as a vehicle to bring about true change.”

Coach Core CEO, Gary Laybourne
