Course Details

If you have a passion for Sports and are unsure how to progress your career inn this sector this is the ideal programme for you.The Level 2 Combined Sports & Leisure Traineeship Programme is an 18 week programme which will give you invaluable life skills and experience to help you secure employment in the Sports, Leisure and fitness industry.

You will attend our sports & leisure training centre working towards a Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing - Exercise and Physical Activity for Children and a Level 2 Award in Employability Skills on a Wednesday & Friday each week to complete the practical & knowledge elements .

In most cases you will have met the employer before the programme starts or they will interview you within the first 4 weeks of the programme. You will complete a minimum of 8 hours each week in the work place over 3 days on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday which will offer you the chance to practice the sports activity & employability skills that you will have learnt with us whilst training. Once you have completed the first 8 weeks your assessor will contact our network of Sports and leisure employers to arrange interviews and work trials with a view to progressing to the apprenticeships they have advertised.

This will give you the opportunity to demonstrate to your work place employer the skills that you can offer their individual business and the classroom based delivery will give you the skills to progress into work or an apprenticeship. The work placement will give you the chance to gain invaluable work place experience which employers look for with a high possibility of moving onto their apprenticeship they are advertising once complete. 

At the end of the 18 weeks  the employer will then decide if they are happy for you to move onto the full apprenticeship. This training opportunity will give you the necessary stepping stones that will lead into full time employment, advanced apprenticeships, self- employment and much more.
