We will provide on the job training, as well as designated "college" time during the week. Study can take place at work or from home with agreement of manager. NVQ assessors will attend the wokplace and for the coaching qualifications - these are run by British Gymnastics so assessment will be away from the gym building. (Usually one or two days spread over the course of a few months)
What to expect at the end of your apprenticeship
Nationally there is a shortage of qualified level 1 and 2 coaches. We expect to employ successful apprentices at the close of their training, circumstances allowing. Gymnastics clubs throughout the region are facing shortages of staff, so vacancies will be available regionally and nationally - though we hope you will stay with us!
