Introduction To Sports Coaching Apprenticeships

The Future Step Sports Coaching Apprenticeship is an excellent way for active young people to progress in their coaching career, gain nationally recognised qualifications and develop skills that will last forever.

If you have a genuine passion for sports – and love being outdoors in general, are  active and keen to help young people progress in their sport and watch them develop as a result of your help, then this is an excellent opportunity for you.

Future Step offers a number of different types of Sports Apprenticeships, including football and schools coaching.

How Do Sports Coaching Apprenticeships Vary?

Which types of sports coaching jobs are you looking for in the future? Football coaching jobs?Tennis coach? Swimming coach? Perhaps you like the idea of activity coaching jobs where you could also be involved in more adventure sports? Whatever type of career in sports coaching you are looking for, Sports Coaching Apprenticeships will equip you with the skills needed to encourage others to succeed and work as part of a team.

For example, you could be working in an activity adventure centre doing activity leader jobs that teach young people about teamwork in an adventure environment. If you want to take the route of landing future football coaching jobs, you could do Football Coach Apprenticeships, where you could be working in primary schools, secondary schools and local sports centres. Football could be one of the sports but you will also get a broad overview of leading and coaching other sporting activities for young people. It’s also possible, if there is one in your area, that you could land yourself an Apprenticeship in Sports Coaching at a specialist academy. This could be focusing on football, rugby or other sports.
