Unsure what course to study?

You just need to answer three simple questions about your study preferences, interests and predicted grades and we can suggest courses that might suit you.

  • 2 Your Interests
  • 3 Your Grades
Question 1

How would you prefer to study?

These results are a suggestion of courses you may want to explore but are by no means a definitive list and individual entry requirements do apply.

Supporting School Sport and PE Apprenticeship Level 3

Practical Vs Theory


Course overview

Inspire+ and New College Stamford are working in partnership to deliver this new and exciting apprenticeship where your role within the school will support the delivery of Physical Education and School Sport. If you have experience of coaching and/​or hold a Sport or Physical Education Level 2 or 3 qualification this may be the course for you!

For newly appointed Apprentice we offer 2 pathways:

A 12 month course based in schools with one day per week spent at New College Stamford. A mainly work based course with attendance in College for periodic twilight sessions designed for upskilling existing employees. This course is designed to run for 12 – 18 months depending on your contracted hours of employment. For current employees at primary and secondary schools we offer the course part-funded through the government apprenticeship levy. The course is identical to the course mentioned above but is a distance learning course with occasional face-to-face training sessions.


What Does The Programme Include

As a newly appointed apprentice you will be employed by your school 4 days a week and attend college one day per week to receive high quality tuition delivered by a member of the Inspire+ team. You will support the delivery of Physical Education and School Sport within your local school and have the opportunity to enhance your value by undertaking other courses such as the Swimmers Teacher Certificate, Young Playground Leaders, Change4Life and Legacy Challenge.

Entry Requirements

Experience of coaching or hold a Sport or Physical Education Level 2 or 3 qualification. A GCSE Grade 4/​C , or equivalent, in Maths and English will be required by the time the course is completed. Support to achieve this will be provided.

Additional Information

Working alongside Inspire+ we are able to offer practical training from a wide range of PE and Sport activities weekly and tailor these to individual school needs. This bespoke training sits alongside the academic element of the apprenticeship.

Potential Future Career

On completion, you will be able to progress on to a full-time role as a PE Teaching Assistant. You may also pursue a coaching role within the sports industry or progress to university to study degrees such as teaching or sports science.
