Coach Core Apprenticeships




We are not currently recruiting for Apprentice Staff.

Please check back at the end of 2017.

In July 2012, The Royal Foundation launched Coach Core; a new innovative and exciting sports coaching apprenticeship targeting young people who wish to gain further education and employment in sports. Since then, apprentices in cities across the UK have been able to enjoy an intensive but incredible opportunity to become educated and employed for 12 months with some of the biggest sports providers and clubs in the industry.

Successful applicants will be involved in a paid full-time sports coaching training programme to support your development and prepare you for future employment. At the end of the 12 months, you will leave with recognised qualifications, new skills knowledge and a wealth of experience working as a trainee sports coach plus the opportunity to attend events unique to this programme.
