The course focuses on employability and all learners are linked up with local employers to gain valuable work experience. On placements students could be assisting with the delivery of sport sessions in a park, or helping to coach in local Primary Schools. They could be running sports festivals in the community, learning how to run a community sports project, or helping out on match days with local sports clubs. Successful candidates are most likely to progress into an apprenticeship.
We always advise our CoachMakers that a positive attitude is key. You get back what you put in. Our employers are always looking to see how young people perform on placement. Our staff are there every step of the way to support and offer guidance to the young coaches to ensure they succeed.

“I chose to work in a project that uses the power of sport to change lives because I love sport and I love helping people to develop and achieve. For me it’s the perfect fit” – Vicki Harding
