The PE and School Sport apprenticeship framework aims to provide new apprentices and existing employees with an introduction to a number of roles through engagement with Physical Education and School Sport (PESS), including teaching, activity leadership and coaching for young people. The qualification provides learners with guidance on further opportunities, including how to contribute to PESS programmes as a sports leader, coach and teaching assistant. There is an opportunity to progress to level 3, which is a competence-based qualification that confirms occupational competency for those operating in a school sport setting.
