What will the apprentice be doing?

At Activ8 For Kids you will be working towards a Community Activator Coach L2 Qualification over the course of 15 months.

2. Adur and Worthing

Coach Core's vision is to drive social mobility through apprenticeships and sport, so that every young person can reach their true potential and inspire those around them. Since our launch in 2012, we have worked with over 150 of the biggest sports providers, youth clubs and charities in the country, supporting over 500 young people. As a result of our ongoing expansion, we are now looking to launch a brand-new programme in Sussex!
