Dudley Council are working in partnership with Active Black Country and Aspire Sports and Fitness to develop a specialist Community Sport and Health Officer (CSHO) Apprenticeship for Dudley schools to access from September 2020.
This role is going to be even more crucial in the current landscape, with evidence suggesting that only 19% of children and young people have been meeting their recommended physical activity levels during lockdown.
The CSHO apprentice has an important role to play in improving the health and wellbeing of children, families and communities by delivering fun, inclusive and engaging activities that help to bring about positive change in physical activity habits.
Apprentices will engage with training that will develop and enhance their coaching skills and equip them to work in a variety of environments, with a range of stakeholders and work effectively in partnership with other organisations.
Furthermore, the apprentices will receive support to identify and access external funding streams for projects within their school and the local community.
There will also be a unique opportunity for candidates to engage with training that will develop and enhance their classroom practice and teaching skills.
