Dearne Valley College (DVC) is launching a new range of Sport Apprenticeships for individuals to take their first steps into their chosen career.
The new Sport Apprenticeships include; Exercise and Fitness Levels 2 and 3, Activity Leadership Levels 2 and 3 and Leisure Management Level 3 which will all be available to the local community through the Wath-based College.
An Apprenticeship allows the learner to train and gain qualifications whilst employed.
The Apprenticeship framework is made up of three elements: Competence Based Qualifications, these are work-based qualifications, which show employers you can actually do the job. Technical Certificates develop your understanding of a particular job and will involve going to College, normally one day per week.
In addition, Functional Skills (Maths, English and Information Communication Technology) will develop your employability skills as you learn to work as part of a team and understand the workplace. Functional Skills ensure you have the Maths and English skills required in the job.
Kaye Jackson, DVC Business Development Manager, commented:
“Sport is an exciting industry to work in and here at DVC we have industry experienced staff that can work with you to start your career. Contact the college and we can get you started”.
DVC offers Intermediate Apprenticeships and Advanced Apprenticeships for all ages that cover a wide range of sectors, from catering to construction.
Other Apprenticeships available through the College include; Brickwork, Business Administration, Childcare, Customer Services, Food Production and Catering, Health and Social Care, Joinery, Painting and Decorating, Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools, and Tiling (Floor and Wall).
