Sharks Community Trust Launch School Sports Apprenticeship Programme

Sharks Community Trust are working with InnovEd to launch our new School Sports Apprenticeship programme in Manchester and surrounding authorities. The scheme will provide an apprentice/ teaching assistant who can focus on delivering high quality PE and wellbeing activities for the whole school.

InnovEd are a niche training provider and have a proven track record of providing innovative solutions for education for schools and private bodies up and down the country.

The apprenticeship programme is initially being offered in the Manchester, Trafford, Salford and Stockport areas, to primary, secondary, prep, independent and special educational needs schools.

In essence schools can get an apprentice / teaching assistant for the school for around £2700 per annum. Apprentices work 30 hours a week, with 1 day per week allocated to off-site training; they are available for lunch time and afterschool clubs as well as assisting with the delivery of normal PE lessons.
