About The Course

Lancashire FA and The FA have invested in the programme by adding more vocational courses which makes this apprenticeship unique and one no other training provider can deliver.

Detailed below are the two-year apprenticeship frameworks:

Year 1: 

Activity Leadership Intermediate Apprenticeship (Level 2)

Level 2 NVQ in Activity Leadership

Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Learning in Physical Education and School Sport

Level 2 Award in Employment Awareness in Active Leisure & Learning (QCF)

Level 1 Functional Skill in English & Maths (where applicable)

Year 2: 

Supporting Teaching & Learning in Physical Education and School Sport (Advanced Apprenticeship - Level 3)

Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Supporting the Delivery in Physical Education and School Sport

Level 3 Award in Employment Awareness in Active Leisure & Learning (QCF)

Level 2 Functional Skill in English & Maths (where applicable)

In addition to the official framework apprentices will be enrolled free of charge onto the following vocational qualifications:

The FA Level 1 in Coaching Football (includes The FA Emergency Aid and Safeguarding Children in Football Workshops)

The FA Level 2 in Coaching Football

1st4Sport Level 1 Principles of Coaching

The FA Coaching Disabled Footballers Course

Level 2 Award in First Aid for Sport 

An FA enhanced CRC disclosure

It is estimated that all of the included qualifications would cost in the region of £4,000.00 and take many years to complete if accessed outside of the Lancashire FA programme. Once complete, the qualifications will exceed the QCF credit rating of two ‘A’ levels and count towards accessing university, should that be the path the apprentice chooses.
