Activity Leadership Apprenticeship (Intermediate Level 2) at Blackburn College

Course description

This Apprenticeship covers a range of occupations within Leisure & Learning Activities, one of the largest industries in the country. Apprentices interested in Coaching could train as a coach in a public leisure centre or private sports facility or learn how to support learners doing after school activity in large scale organisations like in schools. You could progress to work in all sorts of aspects of the sports industry from small private sector companies to chain leisure centres through to individual personalised training. 

If you are aged 16-24, and you don't think you have the necessary 'work-ready' skills, we also offer Traineeships. Our 8 week courses provide the essential work preparation training, English, maths and work experience needed to secure your place on an Apprenticeship.
