Crossbar Coaching - recruiting now

Mon, June 12, 2017

CSL are working with Crossbar Coaching in summer 2017 to deliver education and training for the next generation of Sports Coaches across Telford and Shrewsbury to develop skills in young people and build the next generation of coaching professionals.

With as many as 30 Traineeships starting this July, along with a cohort of both Apprentices and full time learners in September, we’re at a really exciting time for young people in the local area.

Gavin Cowan, Director of Crossbar, said he is excited to be offering up to 20 places, ideal for anyone aged between 16 and 24 with an interest in working in the sport industry, on their new 12-week summer Traineeship programme, starting soon. Successful applicants will then have the chance to secure a place as a full time Crossbar PE & School Sport apprentice, from September, which offers the potential to earn up to £150 per week.

Gavin said: “We run with between four and six apprentices a year at the moment, but the dream has always been to have an apprentice with every one of our coaches working within local schools.

“It will enhance the quality of the delivery and give people the chance to come along and have a taste of sports development and gain some qualifications.

The 12 week Traineeship is targeted at young people looking to take their very first steps in coaching. The programme includes a Multi-sports qualification, Level 2 PE & School Sport, English and maths for those who need it, and vital work experience to develop hands-on skills. No experience is required just an interest in sport and coaching and a willingness to learn about the industry. Traineeships are unpaid experience although learners are able to claim for expenses.

All Trainees will be invited to interview for the 12 month Advanced Apprenticeship too, due to start in September which will offer all Apprentices the opportunity to work within schools across the community as well as complete qualifications in Physical Education and School Sport.
