Coach Core's vision is to drive social mobility through apprenticeships and sport, so that every young person can reach their true potential and inspire those around them. Since our launch in 2012, we have worked with over 150 of the biggest sports providers, youth clubs and charities in the country, supporting over 500 young people. As a result of our ongoing expansion, we are now looking to launch a brand-new programme in Bristol!
We have a fantastic and diverse range of employers involved in the programme, all of whom are committed to providing a supportive environment for their apprentices to flourish in. The programme is made up of a range of activities and sports
The apprenticeship will enable successful candidates to start an unrivalled 15-month programme of learning, gaining meaningful qualifications and have full support and mentoring based on your individual needs. Successful applicants will be offered full time employment with a recognised physical activity or sports-based employer, earning a wage whilst also working towards the Level 2 Community Activator Coach qualification as well as a whole host of additional learning opportunities. In addition, whilst employed directly by one organisation, there will also be access to a range of events, training opportunities and other experiences through the other supportive employers.
We particularly welcome applicants from female, black, minority, ethnic (BME) communities, disabled people and homosexual, bisexual and trans (LGBT) communities, as they are currently underrepresented within our workforce.
