Creating opportunities for today’s future
what is an Apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a combination of a job and an approved training programme which gives an individual the skills and experience required for a specific job role. Our apprenticeships can range from a level 2 through to a level 4 and employers can recruit new staff or enrol current staff onto an apprenticeship programme at any time to up-skill their workforce.
Our apprenticeship duration may vary depending on the apprenticeship selected, but it will be a minimum of 12-15 months. Employing an apprentice is like employing any other member of staff but they must be contracted for at least 30 hours a week and have a contract that covers the duration of their apprenticeship programme.
To gain the knowledge and know how we advise that an apprentice must be given 20% of their contracted time to complete off-the-job training.
So that this can be completed effectively we will discuss and develop and off the job hours as part of Get Actives bespoke programme design and consultation.

mAKING a difference
As a company we pride ourselves on making a difference. Whether this is to a child’s life and wellbeing, or to helping our schools to improve fundraising and providing a more engaging service.
Children who attend extra curricular clubs oftern have improved attendace, higher grades, better social, emotional and behavioural skills.
A recent study funded by the Nuffield Foundation on over 6,400 children born in 2001 reported the children who attended after-school club on one or two days per week had made significantly more progress than expected. Those who attended one day per week had, on average, a 1.7 point higher actual Key Stage 2 score than predicted based on prior attainment and circumstances, while those who attended after-school club two days per week had on average a 3 point higher actual point score.
From September 2017 the Government have announced an increase from £160 million per year to £320 to help schools support healthier, more active lifestyles. This funding will enable primary schools to make further improvements to the quality and breadth of PE and sport they offer. 1,600 schools will also receive funding to ensure more children have a nutritious breakfast as a healthy start to their school day.
Funding for secondary schools has also been announced, allowing schools to extend their school day to offer a wider range of activities to pupils including more sport.

wokingham borough council report
In the Summer of 2015 we were awarded a contract through Wokingham Borough Council to supply holiday camps in 5 areas across 3 weeks. Below is a summary, a full report is available on request.
“From the evidence collected in this report and other external evidence, the continuation of offering an outreach play-scheme in addition to the current sport holiday provisions over the summer period is essential. It will continue to strengthen bonds being built between vulnerable residents and council services by offering a service which supports them returning/continuing to work, maintaining a healthy emotional wellbeing balance within their households and ensuring the vulnerable children in our community are taking part in a safe, enriching project which supports not just their physical development but also their educational development over the long summer period.
In conclusion, the extension of the summer play-schemes is strongly recommended and the benefits have been overwhelmingly demonstrated through data and anecdotal evidence gathered this summer”
We are heavily involved with local community projects such as:
Sport Relief, where with 5 other schools have helped to raise over £10,000 for the charity.
Thames Valley Youth FC’s main Sponsor for their annual 6-a-side tournament for 1,600 children, we donated £1000 to the charity whilst helping them raise further funds over the weekend.
Thames Valley Police football tournament and a Fun Day for the Scouts are just a few examples of upcoming events.
