How it works
The Level 4 Sports Coach Apprenticeship is delivered over 18 months. Following a structured programme of blended learning, our tutors will delivery sessions that help to support you in developing knowledge, skills and behaviours required to complete your apprenticeship. The majority of the working week will be spent in school working alongside our education team. 20% of the week will be allocated to the theory session, allowing you to complete your study during work hours.
There will be regular progress reviews held with your tutor. They will set SMART targets which will help support keeping you on track to completing the qualification.

Should we not have any school sport educator vacancies available upon completion, support will be given in signposting to other opportunities within the sector.
