Schools Apprenticeship Service
PE & School Sport

The PE and School Sport apprenticeship programme is designed for schools looking to enhance the coaching and teaching of physical education within their school. 


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 a 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.

The PE & School Sport Apprenticeship Programme is a full time course which involves up to 30 hours of paid work in a school per week and 6 hours of study. The programme can be studied in conjunction with work experience in either a primary or secondary school environment for a minimum of 53 weeks. The apprentice is expected to be paid in line with the national minimum wage for apprentices.
