Community Sport and Health Officer Apprenticeship
In partnership with Riverside Training, we are extending our successful PE and School Sport apprenticeship programme to community organisations. The Level 3 Community Sport and Health Officer qualification aims to engage people in sport and physical activity across local communities; the key role of the apprentice is to initiate behaviour change and support individuals and groups of people to become more physically active.
This apprenticeship provides an exciting opportunity for anyone to kick-start a career in coaching, physical activity or health related fields, whilst allowing community organisations to increase capacity and expertise.
Apprentices are employed by a community organisation for approximately 13 months. During this, time will predominantly be spent based with the employer, with some time dedicated to study/tutor days. The programme is aimed at anyone aged 17+ who is passionate about working with people in the local community and enjoys sport / physical activity.
The apprenticeship as a whole gave me lots of experience, new ideas and a real insight into the world of teaching and coaching.Harriet, 2019-20 Apprentice
The programme has been planned and written by an experienced PE teacher, to reflect the needs of local organisations. Both practical delivery and theory will be incorporated, alongside a variety of guest speakers working across the sports industry. Visits to local providers and study sessions to develop understanding across the key skills, knowledge and behaviours expected of someone working in this role will also be incorporated.
