Overview of Support offered

The Coaching Communities programme provides accredited training, national minimum standard workshops, individual support and guidance throughout by expert qualified tutors who are active sports coaches. Also there is a valuable and rewarding volunteer placement to enable you to utilise your new qualifications and skills learnt on the programme in a supportive environment.

This programme will be effective with building your confidence and self-esteem as you will firstly learn as a group, then progress onto either the Sports Leaders qualification as a group (if you are not at a level to move onto a Level 1 NGB qualification as individuals) and then put everything you have learnt into practice in a volunteering placement.

  • Sports coach UK – equity in your coaching.
  • Emergency First Aid qualification.

Outcomes expected

Through the use of sport we will engage and support you to grow as an individual and empower you to develop your confidence and change your mind-set to be motivated and demand more for yourself in terms of career prospects.

By enabling you to become more effective and efficient communicators you will be able to apply for better quality local employment and training.

Sports coaching is a growth industry and gaining industry recognised qualifications and completing a volunteer placement is the ideal start for you to become an employed sports coach. We are working with private coaching organisations throughout England to supply apprenticeships. Paid sports coaching is now recognised as a potential career opportunity.

As a result of how we deliver our Coaching Communities programme and the holistic approach we take to supporting each individual more young people secure employment, take up training or further education, or create their own employment and enterprise.
