Get Active Academy


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 3 and employers can recruit new staff or enrol current staff onto an apprenticeship programme at any time.

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.  With the knowledge and know how we advise that an apprentice must be given 20% of their contracted time to complete off-the-job training as part of their apprenticeship which we feel will give your apprentice the best learning experience, therefore, understanding their job role better. In this programme, they will go through courses such as employment awareness, Managing money and planning.

  • Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Supporting the Delivery of Physical Education and School Sport

This is what we have installed for you for September 2019!! Football and Basketball Scholarships open to Girls and Boys aged 16 – 18 years of age.

The main programme of study is the Level 2 and Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport, which covers a wide variety of modules that focus on both practical and theoretical aspects of sports, and opens up opportunities for our scholars to engage in a diverse range of sporting pursuits and applied projects during their time with us. Our programmes are open to boys and girls of the age 16 – 18 years of age where they will be encouraged and given the opportunity to gain vital qualifications in the sports industry.

All scholars are assigned to a designated pastoral mentor and will be taught by fully qualified, experienced and industry-based tutors, coaches and instructors. Opportunities will also be made available for our scholars to work with sports industry professionals and mentors.

For scholars who do not possess a Grade 4 or above in Maths and English at GCSE, it is an Academy requirement that they carry out an additional study with us to pass the Level 2 Functional Skills exams or GCSE re-sits in both subjects, so if this is you, get revising now!

Support is given to scholars throughout the course in their pursuit of application to Higher Education/University, engagement with employment and progression to playing higher level football – at home or abroad!
