The Sports Coaching Level 4 Apprenticeship is designed for Apprentices who have a designated apprenticeship place in a work-based context. Apprentices will typically spend 18 months working on the programme before undertaking their End Point Assessment with an External Accredited Apprenticeship assessor. The minimum length of any Apprenticeship is 12 months. 

Apprentices will undertake a Skills Scan when starting the course to identify areas of strength and areas for development. Each Apprentice will have a personalised learning plan to complete. Progress on this plan will be monitored via 1-hour long tutorials every four weeks. Apprentices will access learning materials via the university’s VLE – moodle. In order to access the materials, they need to complete their learning plan.

Apprentices complete a core set of standards or duties and then choose to complete one of the following options:

  • Community Coaching
  • School Based Coaching

Their choice will be made based on their work location. There will be some whole cohort teaching onsite as appropriate, so that apprentices can form an effective peer group.
