Arsenal in the Community is offering an exciting opportunity for individuals aged 16-18 to study a two-year BTEC Level 3 in Sports, Development Coaching and Fitness. Participants will learn to coach the Arsenal way at our Arsenal Hub by Emirates Stadium, and be supported towards further education and employment. The programme - which starts in September 2017 - will teach students the key elements of community sports coaching, with a particular focus on football.
Trainees will also receive coaching experience and will be mentored towards FA Level 1 and 2 coaching badges. The Arsenal traineeship programme has been a cornerstone of Arsenal in the Community since the 1980s.
Close to 1000 individuals have come through the programme in the past 30 years, including former Arsenal Ladies’ star Rachel Yankey and Cambridge United’s physio Nick Irwin. For more information on the course and to apply, click here
