Lizzie and Ahsan, our Coach Core apprentices, delivered their first funding pitch to Street Games…
This week we found out the fantastic news that Ahsan has passed his Level 2 Community Activator Coach apprenticeship course. The team are all immensely proud of Ahsan and his amazing achievement. He has worked closely with Dan Cookson (mentor), the White Rose Rugby team and Coach Core (the apprenticeship provider), to achieve his apprenticeship.
The apprenticeship has given Ahsan the opportunity to lead and coach fun, inclusive and engaging activities that help people of all ages to change their behaviour and adopt and maintain a physically active lifestyle. The role of the Level 2 Community Activator Coach will underpin occupations such as an Activator, Sports Coach, Activity Leader, Community Worker or Outreach Officer. These roles are predominantly employed by sport for social change charities; organisations that operate in the sport and physical activity sector; local authorities; sports clubs; leisure centres; youth work agencies; housing associations and outdoor education centres and are deployed to primarily work with inactive groups of people.
Throughout the apprenticeship Ahsan has developed his ability to plan, deliver, evaluate and reflect on delivery of sport and activity opportunities. As well as working in partnership with local sports clubs, youth work settings, community centres, educational institutions and public service personnel, to deliver engaging and sustainable opportunities for people to come together and get active. Picking up new coaching tools and techniques that are needed to offer different sports and activities in different environments.
Ahsan has received some excellent feedback from his work across the year from colleagues, Assessors, participants in his sessions and those involved inm his apprenticeship journey. He received the following from his learning coach, Arran Brooksbanks…
“The final assessor, also wanted me to pass on some really positive information on how much she was impressed with him during all of his assessments and he’s a credit to White Rose Rugby, she was hugely impressed with the impact he has with the participants within his sessions also and thoroughly enjoyed his coaching session!”.

“Mohammed has applied in depth knowledge of his organisations procedures and policies. The session plan supports clients to participate in the sessions and will develop motivational relationships.
