The Apprenticeship in Coaching is designed for those individuals who wish to gain a broad, but solid foundation to allow them to follow a career in the active leisure sector as a coach in the context of a specific sport. In active leisure, roles covered by this framework tend to be more of a community and/or club focus, and apprentices are often employed in community settings as community sport coaches or club coaches. However the advanced level pathway also caters for coaching at elite levels.
The expectation is that this framework is completed in a minimum duration of 12 months.
Please note it is recommended that apprentices are contracted and employed for a minimum of 30 hours on publicly funded programmes.
