Black Country10865-173


There were no ‘Higher’ apprenticeship starts in Sport, Leisure and Recreation in 2017-18 and total apprenticeship across this sector only account for around 2% of all apprenticeships in the Black Country. However, this does not account for the Community Sport and Health Officers deployed across schools in Wolverhampton as part of a partnership approach involving Active Black Country, ConnectEd and the City of Wolverhampton Council; these apprentices would count under the ‘Education’ sector.
