The Community Activator Coach apprenticeship is ideal if you would like a career as an Activator, Sports Coach, Activity Leader, Community Worker or Outreach Worker.
These roles work mainly with inactive groups of people in the following organisations:
- Sport for social change charities
- Companies who operate in the sport and physical activity sector
- Local authorities
- Sports clubs
- Leisure centres
- Youth work agencies
- Housing associations
- Outdoor education centres
The wider sport and activity sector plays an important role in improving the health and wellbeing of the nation and provides a positive environment which supports (especially young) people to grow and develop through sport and physical activity.
The Community Activator Coach promotes, delivers and coaches fun, inclusive and engaging activities that help whole communities to change their behaviour, adopt and keep to a physically active lifestyle. Community Activator Coaches are more than activity and sports leaders – you will understand communities and customers and have the specialist knowledge needed to effectively work with one customer group (such as inactive teenagers) but also be knowledgeable about other inactive customer groups who you may be expected to work with on occasion. When competent you will be experienced working with a range of different communities and all kinds of customers who are likely to be classed to be inactive, sedentary or not doing enough physical activity in their lives.
You also know how to make communities and lives better through physical activity, organised play and sport.
The Community Activator Coach is be a positive role model and you will build a good rapport with customers - especially those who are young, inactive, or from low-income and marginalised communities.
You will often work alongside youth workers, the police and community safety agencies to make neighbourhoods safer and work alongside health workers to make residents fitter and healthier. The role is a flexible one and you can expect to work varied and unsociable hours, including evenings, weekends and school holidays.
