New Athletics Coaching & Leadership Workforce Credit Scheme

New Athletics Coaching & Leadership Workforce Credit Scheme

A key building block of the Youth Sport Trust (YST) mission of ‘building a brighter future for young people through PE and sport’ is the development and support of a workforce that can introduce and sustain the involvement of children and young people in sport in both a school and community setting. A vital part of this workforce consists of qualified coaches and leaders.

To support and develop these, the YST have introduced their Sports College Coaching Legacy programme. As part of this programme the Trust, in partnership with England Athletics, are offering incentives to prioritised Specialist Sports Colleges (SSCs) who are committed to recruiting more young people into coaching and sports leadership.

The YST have pledged financial support for England Athletics to administer a Workforce Credit Scheme. This will support specially targeted SSCs and School Sports Partnerships (SSPs) to secure places for identified aspiring coaches and leaders on accredited courses that form part of the England Athletics coaching and leadership education programme.
