Community Activator Coach (Apprenticeship Level 2)


On completion of this standard, apprentices will be able to promote, deliver and coach fun, inclusive and engaging activities that help whole communities to change their behaviour, adopt and keep to a physically active lifestyle. Community Activator Coaches are more than activity 
and sports leaders – they understand communities and customers; and tailor their approach to engage each customer area. When competent they will be experienced working with a range of different communities and all kinds of customers who are likely to be defined as inactive, sedentary or not doing enough physical activity in their lives. They also know how to make communities and lives better through physical activity, organised play and sport.

Apprentices who successfully complete this apprenticeship will be automatically given a membership with the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) at Associate level.

Entry Requirements

There are no other formal qualifications required to start this apprenticeship, but applicants will be assessed to ensure they have the ability to complete the English and Maths qualification to at least level 1. Employers may consider applicants based on relevant prior experience.

Functional Skills

Apprentices without level 1 English and maths will need to achieve this level and apprentices without level 2 English and maths will need to take the tests for this level prior 
to taking the end-point assessment. For those with an education, health and care plan or a legacy statement, the apprenticeship’s English and maths minimum requirement is Entry Level 3. A British Sign Language (BSL) qualification is an alternative to the English qualification for those whose primary language is BSL.


The Apprenticeship will take 16 months to complete, with an additional 2 months for End Point Assessment.


Successful completers will be able to move into roles within the Sector where they may be responsible for leading teams the delivery of sporting and physical activity programmes to certain populations or communities.


Levy paying employers may fund apprentices on this programme from their Apprenticeship Account and non-levy paying SMEs through the co-funded option. There may be a small fee for some SME’s.

End Point Assessment

To achieve this apprenticeship standard, the employer, training provider and apprentice will agree when the apprentice is ready and competent to undertake the independent end assessment, which will test their skills, knowledge and behaviours required for this role.
