At Rotherham United Community we run Work Based / Employability training (Traineeships) which provides people with the opportunity to enhance their skills and knowledge in a sports setting. We have two routes for those aged 16 – 18 or 19 – 24 and not in education, employment or training.
This is a fantastic opportunity to gain work experience and learn new skills, offering career progression paths within a sport and leisure environment. You will spend 30 hours a week at RUCST where you will get the chance to shadow professional members of club staff and community officers.
After successfully completing 12 weeks of employability skills, leadership qualifications and work experience, you will have the opportunity to progress further with Rotherham United Community Sports Trust either in employment or education.
The Coach Apprentice programme, developed in partnership with RNN group, provides opportunities for 16-18 year olds the chance to immerse themselves in the world of sports coaching.
As well as gaining experience and developing coaching skills in live environments, apprentices will work towards a number of industry-relevant qualifications including the FA Level 1 and Level 2 qualification.
