On this unique, programme, students will be gaining qualifications, skills, advice and career guidance from experienced Sport tutors and professionals. Students experience real life sport-based work placements. You could be delivering sport sessions across the city, assisting with coaching in local Primary Schools, running sports festivals in the community, discovering how to run a community sports project, or even help out on match days with local sport clubs.
The course is fun, active and develops leadership skills, builds confidence and improves communication, all valuable, transferable skills for todays workplace.

A big element of this course is work experience. You will be placed with an employer to practice what you have learned and gain confidence. If you do well with the employer there is a good chance they may offer you full/part time work, or even an apprenticeship. You will still continue to attend the course throughout these terms one day a week, to develop your skills and knowledge around topics such as:
Coaching People with Disabilities
Managing Challenging Behaviour
Fundamentals of Movement
What do I do afterwards?
On completion of the course you will have the chance to apply for paid Apprenticeship placements or progress to a Level 3 programme. However, ALL applicants will be supported into other opportunities.
When & Where does it start?
The Coachmakers course runs from start of September until June. Traineeship opportunities are on an individual basis and last from between 3-6 months.
2C Training Academy run programmes in Knowle, Clevedon and Yate in the Bristol area.
How do I apply?
There are 20 places available. This is not a foundation learning programme it is a vocational level 2 so we expect a reasonable standard of Maths and English. But if you have the right attitude and are willing to learn, we welcome your application. Our aim is to raise aspiration and inspire success. If you are already volunteering in some kind of Sports Coaching, this is looked at very favourably.
