I chose to do an apprenticeship because it gave me coaching experience which I wanted for my future career.

I heard about the opportunity through Youth Connexions. They emailed me opportunities whilst I was at college. They sent off my CV, I then had an interview and did a coaching session which was observed.

Positives: I enjoy doing the PE lessons with children and learning coaching techniques.

Negatives: I don’t enjoy all sports (dancing)!

My key advice: Go to college and do a sports course initially as you need some knowledge and coaching experience.
