Community Activator, Apprenticeship
What will I do on this course?
On this apprenticeship you will be working within a variety of settings which are in the sport and physical activity sector; local authorities; sports clubs; leisure centres; youth work agencies; housing associations and outdoor education centres or schools.
You will gain the skills and experience to improve the health and well being of individuals and wider-communities to provide a positive environment which supports young people to grow and develop through sport and physical activity.
How will I be assessed?
To achieve this apprenticeship you will undertake an end-point assessment that will assess the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to successfully perform this role in a community sports environment. Weston College and your employing organisation will ensure that you are ready and competent to complete the end-point assessment.
What could I do after this course?
You could progress onto the Level 3 Community Health and Sport Officer Apprenticeship or move into leadership and management roles within the sector. This progression will involve leading teams of people; acting as a mentor for staff; or specialising with the delivery of sporting and physical activity programmes to certain populations or communities.
Apprentices who successfully complete this apprenticeship will be eligible to apply for membership with the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) as a Practitioner.
There are no formal qualifications required to start this apprenticeship but you will be assessed to ensure you have the ability to complete the English and maths qualifications to at least Level 1. You must undertake a recognised enhanced disclosure and barring service check. You will also need to be in relevant employment, but we can help you find this.
