The Level 3 Community Sport and Health Officer is a 16 to 20 month apprenticeship. Apprentices will work in a sport development role for an organisation who deliver programmes in the community that focus on promoting behavioural change through sport and physical activity.
Since 2002 Sport Structures have been supporting and developing sport organisations and individuals through our services. With our experience and expertise, we are able to offer further knowledge and understanding to apprentices and employers in addition to the standard requirements. Learning modules are mainly delivered at an employer’s workplace or another suitable venue and often as a group. Each apprentice is given a toolkit to support them through the apprenticeship and additional e-learning modules are included in the delivery plan to enhance a learner’s knowledge and understanding.
Apprentices must be employed for the duration of the apprenticeship and work at least 30 hours per week for their employer with 20 per cent of their time allocated to ‘off the job’ training. The apprentices will be assessed via an end point assessment including a work-based observation, a case study challenge, a presentation with questions and answers and a panel interview to check they have gained the required knowledge, skills and behaviours to achieve the community sport and health officer standard.
