Sport4Kids has launched a range of traineeships for individuals aged between 16 and 24 years who have a passion for children’s sport education and are looking for a future career in this sector.
What is a traineeship?
A traineeship is a course that includes a work placement. It can last from 6 weeks up to 6 months. The Sport4Kids traineeship program lasts for 12-weeks.
The three Sport4Kids traineeships available are:
- S4K Sports Coaching
- S4K Early Years
- S4K Childcare
Where Does A S4K Traineeship Look Like?
The S4K Sports Coaching traineeship gives trainees the opportunity to learn how to teach children in a variety of sports following a proven world-class coaching methodology. Trainees follow the S4K Coaching Pathway and complete online training modules in areas such as effective communication with children of different ages, how to work with parents, technical skills and child behaviour management.Trainees will attend weekly S4K classes in our weekend skills centres and evening academy centres.
The S4K Early Years traineeship introduce trainees to working in the Early Years environment, including nurseries and sport specific classes in our weekend skills venues. There is a coaching development pathway and online training modules for trainees to complete over 12-weeks, and experience working with toddlers and pre-school children, understanding their needs and how they develop their learning.
S4K Childcare traineeships work in the childcare sector, working specifically in school wraparound care services and school holiday care. Again, there is a specific coaching development pathway and online training modules for the trainee to complete. Over 12-weeks, trainees will learn how to work in the childcare sector and understand the needs and requirements of schools, parents and children, and the differences in working in after school clubs, breakfast clubs and holiday camps.
