PE & School Sport Apprenticeship Programme

Before the end of this programme, the apprentice will be able to deliver sporting activities and coaching to a high standard. The programme will increase confidence, expand knowledge and enhance teaching skills.

What is the PE & School Sport Apprenticeship Programme?


The PE and School Sport Apprenticeship Programme is a government funded scheme for new and existing staff, providing specific work-based training designed around the needs of your business, sport club or PE department.

VLUK have been successfully delivering apprenticeship qualifications since we were founded in 2007, and have seen many ex-apprentices go on to rewarding careers in their chosen area of work.

In May 2017, we were awarded Main Provider Status with the Education & Skills Funding Agency to deliver apprenticeships.

The PE & School Sport Apprenticeship Programme is a full-time course which involves up to 30 hours of paid work per week in a school, club or business environment and 6 hours of study (via our online learning cloud - The Sport Brain) for a minimum of 53 weeks.

The Apprentice is expected to be paid in line with the national minimum wage for apprentices.
