We are excited to be launching 4 new programmes in the coming months, in Birmingham, Surrey, Sussex and Northumberland, Tyne & Wear!
These will be our 1st programmes in Surrey and Sussex, our 3rd in Birmingham and our 2nd in Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and will take us up to our 45th programme overall.

We are now accepting applications for apprentices on these programmes, through the links below.

The Coach Core Apprenticeship is unlike any other out there due to the way we bring together a group of employers and other partners to work together to provide a unique and exciting range of events and opportunities for all young people. You will have a group of peers going through the apprenticeship with you, and a dedicated tutor to support you through the qualification and help you put your learning into practice at work.

You will get to work with the very best employers in the sport and physical activity sector, get top tuition, and earn a wage while you learn. If that sounds good to you, it’s time to turn your ambitions into a reality and set yourself on this exciting coaching path.
