There are around 1.1 million coaches currently in the UK across schools, youth clubs, leisure centres and sports clubs. The demand for competent, qualified sports coaches has risen because of the popularity of sports in the UK.
The work is challenging and varied and may include the development of performance sport, community sport and physical activity and/or participation for particular target groups.
Sports apprentices will typically be responsible for working with local communities to:
- identify the need and demand for new activities
- improve access to sport for young people, people with disabilities and people from disadvantaged communities,
- support community amateur sports clubs
They can also be responsible for:
- organising national governing body qualification courses
- sport and physical activity events
- supporting initiatives to reduce crime and rehabilitate offenders.
