Support Sport Apprenticeship Scheme!

Stacey Doughty officially signed up to become Support Sport's first apprentice today.

"She is working with us in schools, local communities and clubs etc and has really impressed in her trial period".

Stacey used to be NEET (not in education, employment or training) since leaving school, but has demonstrated the makings of a fantastic sports coach since getting involved in our youth project Unity in the Community! The project was funded by Awards for All Big Lottery Fund and Warwick District Council.

"we are aiming to provide a pathway for sucess for young people, starting right in the heart of their communities and inspiring the individuals to keep on developing for years to come"
Director, Joe Graham
Stacey's apprenticeship has been kindly funded by Warwickshire Crimebeat, and Heart of England Training (left in photo) and SSCU Sport (right) have developed the programme for the guidance of Support Sport.

Stacey is also very pleased with her own progress as she states below:

"I have got so much more confidence, respect of other people and I'm really enjoying and appreciating the opportunity"
