Community Activator, Apprenticeship

This apprenticeship is aimed at coaches working in a variety of settings within the wider community in the sport and physical activity sector, local authorities, sports clubs, leisure centres, youth work agencies, housing associations, and outdoor education centres or schools. The programme is bespoke to each learner to teach the skills needed to create high quality community activator coaches in their chosen sector area.

This role plays a huge part in improving the health and wellbeing of the nation and providing positive encouragement and motivation to get people moving!

Studying this course means that you will work within one of our local or regional partner employers who are actively involved throughout your whole training programme.

What does the course involve?

You will gain the skills and experience to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and wider communities to provide a positive environment which supports young people to grow and develop through sport and physical activity.

The Community Activator Coach often works alongside key community stakeholders including youth workers, sports clubs, the police, and community sports partnerships to encourage communities to become healthier and more active, provide opportunities for sport and wellbeing, and improve engagement with one another. The role is a flexible one and individuals can expect to work varied and unsociable hours, including evenings, weekends and school holidays.

How will the course 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.

Are there any additional costs?

None, although your employer may expect you to have access to your own transport.

What future study opportunities and careers are there?

You could progress onto the Level 3 Community Health and Sport Officer Apprenticeship, Level 4 Sports Coach 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 groups or communities.
