Coach Core apprenticeship returns for Year 2


12th July 2017

The London Rugby League Foundation is seeking applicants for two new coaching apprenticeships.  The two apprenticeships will form part of a wider group of twenty apprentices employed by eight organisations as part of a programme called Coach Core, funded by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

This is the second year of the Foundation's involvement with Coach Core, with Aston Stephenson and Max Savage working towards graduation in August.  Aston has spent the year coaching with London Skolars community team, whilst Max has been working with the Foundation in South London, and London Broncos community team in Ealing.  

Managing Director of the Foundation, Dan Steel, said "Coach Core is a fantastic programme for enthusiastic aspiring young coaches.  Max and Aston have had a huge positive impact working with the Foundation this year, and have really progresed as individuals and as coaches. I'm delighted we will be continuing to work with the Royal Foundation and our fellow consortium members for another year, and look forward to hearing from any young people interested in working within rugby league.".

The seven other organisations who will become employers, in addition to the Foundation, are the MCC, The Fulham FC Foundation, Snow Camp, Rio Ferdinand Foundation, sport for social change charity Greenhouse Sports, London Youth Rowing and the West Ham United Foundation. Successful applicants will work as full time paid coaches and leave the programme with recognised qualifications, new skills, knowledge and a wealth of experience from working as a trainee sports coach.

To be eligible for the programme applicants must:

- Not already be in full time education, employment or training.

- Be aged 16-24 years old on application.

- Be available to take part in a recruitment day on 14th & 15th August. 

- Be available for full time paid employment of 30 hours a week for a full year from September 2017.
