Apprentices without level 2 (or equivalent) will need to achieve this before the final assessment.


There are no required qualifications for completing this apprenticeship. It is expected that apprentices will leave with a meaningful and transferable portfolio. There are no mandatory prerequisite qualifications, although as examples, a multi skills level 2 coaching qualification or community or higher sports leaders' awards would be an advantage.


The apprenticeship will take between 16-20 months to complete – only exceptional candidates will be likely to complete in a shorter time frame.


Apprentices will be employed at the national minimum wage for apprentices.


Successful candidates will be able to move into more senior roles within the sector – leading teams of people or specialising with certain communities, sports or programmes.

Active Fusion has a strong track record of appointing graduate apprentices.
