SCL are creating the next generation of Sports Coaching professionals through expert apprenticeship provision #NAW2019.

In support of National Apprenticeship Week 2019, SCL are showcasing how they are working in partnership with sports coaching and leisure companies to lead the way in apprenticeship provision, and create the next generation of sports coaching professionals.



Combining work with study for ambitious young learners aged 16 and over, apprenticeships are rapidly changing the world of work. With government encouraging all businesses to incorporate apprenticeship provision into their growth strategy, employers are now utilising their apprenticeship levy to fund their training and development.


As one of the leading providers of education through sport, SCL are working in partnership with over 70 professional, private and grassroots sports clubs, foundations and community trusts, and graduating over 2000 learners every year.


Recruiting 40 apprentices to their very own market leading Sports Activities & Childcare division; SCL Kids, and with experience in organising and managing apprenticeships across sports and leisure sectors, SCL know what it takes to deliver effective training that creates results for both individuals and their partners.



Priding themselves on giving back to the community, SCL help learners gain vital qualifications, work experience and employability skills, whilst engaging more people in sport, and creating employment opportunities within the local community.


A recent Ofsted Monitoring visit reported that “senior leaders have a well-developed strategy to become a specialist provider, offering a high-quality apprenticeship, based mostly around sports coaching and physical education teaching”


Lewis Field, SCL Chief Executive, explained: “We are proud to be leading the way in the sports and leisure sector, and trailblazing with our courses which in turn support learners’ health and wellbeing.”
