What will the apprentice be doing?

You will be part of a team assisting the running of various activity clubs during term time including before school 7am-9am, after school 3pm-6pm, community and party sessions during the day and occasional weekends.

During the school holidays we run full day holiday camps that run from 7:30am - 6pm, and you'd be part of the team delivering the activities to the children!

You will be coaching a variety of activities such as football, dance and drama, tag rugby, arts and crafts to children aged 3-13 years old. Set up, dismantle and maintain equipment and manage class behaviour, motivate and encourage all pupils to take part.

We wish for every child to have the chance to get active and have developed our themed academies to encourage children to get active without realising they are doing so. We play activities such as lazer maze where we tie red string across the room in different heights and directions for the children to cross from one end of the room to the other without touching the string - without realising they are working on their balance, coordination and team work!

Multi-Active operate in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Essex.
