The Walsall FC Community Programme is looking for Modern Apprentice Coaches...THE WALSALL FC Community Programme is currently recruiting young people to become Modern Apprentice Coaches within our nationally-recognised Community Department.
Applications for interviews are currently being taken and details can be found on the National Modern Apprentice website: www.apprenticeshipvacancymatchingservice.lsc.gov.uk (search Football in the Community in Employers).
The application deadline is getting close, so please apply at your earliest opportunity. Successful applicants will be invited to an Interview Day at the Banks's Stadium on Wednesday, August 7th 2013.
Community Manager, Adam Davy, said: "All of our current staff have graduated from our successful Modern Apprenticeship Scheme, including myself. It is a great opportunity for young people to gain an insight into life at a professional club, and in particular our Scheme and the work we do.
“The Apprenticeship is an initial one-year placement, with some Apprentices earning a second year.
“The experience of the Sport and Leisure Industry they will gain is fantastic. On top of that we make sure that all of our Apprentices leave us with a better education. We help them to gain Level 2 NVQ Qualifications as well as Industry-specific awareness certificates and, of course, their football coaching badges.
“I am excited to see who will be our new intake of ten Apprentices for September 2013.”
