Active Sussex have worked with Coach Core to deliver a second sports apprenticeship programme in Sussex in 2023/24, with the second cohort started in April 2023.
What is Coach Core?
Coach Core is an apprenticeship programme targeting 16-24 year olds who are not in education or employment (NEETs). It delivers an inclusive and impactful sports and activity coaching apprenticeship that develops the talents of young people and provides them with a range of vital skills for employment and life.
Coach Core, created by The Royal Foundation in 2012 as part of the Olympic Legacy, aims to create inspirational sports coaches to deliver sport in the community, particularly in communities that have traditionally had poor access to high quality, professional coaching.
Coach Core Sussex
Coach Core is about changing the lives of young people in some of the UK’s most challenging cities through an innovative and engaging sports coaching apprenticeship. By harnessing a number of qualifications, experiences and additional learning opportunities, the goal is to ensure each apprentice goes onto further education or employment and provides greater coaching provision in the communities in which they serve.
