Schools Apprenticeship Service
The Sports Development apprenticeship programme is designed for schools looking to develop new staff, and enhance the sport on offer in their local community.
The programme offers apprentices and existing employees a foundation to develop skills in activity leadership and sports development for young people.
Although Sports Development apprentices are often used in the sports industry, the programme has become increasingly popular with schools in recent years.
Common roles filled by sports development apprentices in schools, include arranging and organising fixtures, sports coaching, and sports volunteer management.
