What will the apprentice be doing?

  • The ideal applicant will work with Axis Trampoline & Gymnastics Club to develop the club's gymnastics/trampolining offering.
  • You will be employed in a full-time role in a gymnastics and/or trampoline coaching environment, whilst being supported through your apprenticeship journey on the programme by our trained mentors.
  • The British Gymnastics Apprenticeship Programme will be split into three main sections:
  • 1) The apprenticeship delivered by Bridgwater and Taunton College.
  • 2) Personal development and gymnastics related training in one specialist gymnastics discipline (to be agreed), delivered by British Gymnastics.
  • 3) Employment with Axis Trampoline and Gymnastics Club.
  • As a requirement of the Apprenticeship standard, you will work a minimum of 16 hours per week (with some apprentices commonly being employed for 30-40 hours per week), which must also include the hours required for “off-the-job" training. We will identify with you the exact agreed hours of work during the interview stage.

You will be supported in this by our team of qualified coaches and mentors.
  • The off-the-job hours will include working in a variety of gymnastics disciplines/depts within the club which are separate from your chosen specialist discipline, as well as working in general club operations including customer service, reception work, serving in our busy cafe, ensuring centre cleanliness, equipment management, and successfully completing any apprenticeship coursework or assignments.

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

The apprenticeship itself is the Level 2 Community Activator Coach Standard, however, within the journey of the apprenticeship, Axis will also support your coaching development by offering you an opportunity to gain a Bristish Gymnastics coaching qualification in an appropriate gymnastics discipline to suit the needs of both the club and the apprentice (to be agreed prior to you accepting the role).

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

After the Apprenticeship, you now have the knowledge and a Bristish Gymnastics Qualification to continue your coaching journey anywhere in the UK.
