Supporting enterprise, learning, work, and skills development
One young person went on to set up their own coaching business, others have gone onto university to study sport, whilst some have gained new skills but moved away from sport altogether.

Coach Core

Coach Core is a modern apprenticeship for young people who aren’t in education, training, or employment. The programme allows them to gain several qualifications including one in sports coaching. It gives them experiences and skills which help them move into work.
