Created by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry and officially launched in April 2013, Coach Core is a training programme for young people from communities who do not have access to traditional sports coaching opportunities. During the year long course the participants develop employment skills, gain accredited coaching qualifications, and receive gold standard training from inspirational coaches. The apprentice coaches learn “on the job” and throughout the programme they receive dedicated support from carefully selected mentors.
Coach Core aspires to make young people more employable and create a future generation of first class sports coaches who will be role models for other young people in their communities. Coach Core provides opportunities for young people who are not in higher education, employment or training and provides high quality vocational training required by employers. Coach Core aims to inspire young people through sport.
