We are looking for schools, sports clubs or related companies to be part of our PE Apprenticeship programme. By supporting a PE Apprentice, you can kickstart their career, provide your staff with more support and help children get active.

Your apprentice will be on site a minimum of 4 days a week, supporting face-to-face delivery, whilst they train for either their Level 2 Community Activator Coach Apprenticeship Standard, Level 3 Teaching Assistant through PE Apprenticeship Standard or Level 3 Event Assistant Standard.

A PE Apprentice can be a great addition to your team. They are often a fantastic role model for children and young people.

School based Apprentices, when not assisting in PE lessons, can also support classroom learning. They can help with preparing teams for events and competitions, assist with administration around PE and school sport and provide additional input for those children who need it most, facilitating active breaktimes and increasing the opportunities for your children to participate in sport and physical activity.

Club based Apprentices can support all aspects of coaching and delivery and with setting up and delivering events.

Get in touch to find out how a PE Apprentice can join your staff team.

The PE apprenticeship scheme gave me opportunities and experiences within a school setting to be able to develop as a person and as a coach. It enhanced my opportunities to coach abroad and I now have a full time job in coaching. I could not recommend the Apprenticeship scheme enough.
