Coach Core continues to set the pace

20 Young people set to start a year long sport employment programme with Glasgow Sport
On Monday 24th November 20 young people began 12 months of employment with Glasgow Sport on the Coach Core programme. All young people were put through their paces during Pre Coach Core, the recruitment stage and demonstrated their enthusiasm for sport and drive to become the next generation of sports coach.

Glasgow Sport worked in partnership with Jobs and Business Glasgow to deliver five weeks of Pre Coach Core to prepare 29 young people for employment. All the involved in this part of the programme successfully achieved their SQA Certificate of Work Readiness whilst challenging themselves to try new sports and gain skills via the TOPs Sport and National Pool Lifeguard Qualification.

The successful 20 apprentices have now started their employment with Glasgow Sport on the Coach Core programme, with the remaining 9 young people from Pre Coach Core successfully gaining a 190 hour paid work placement within a Glasgow Sport facility.
