There are two types of Apprenticeships available in the active leisure, learning and wellbeing sector sector in England:
- Apprenticeship in Active Leisure and Learning
This Apprenticeship provides apprentices with a mix of practical and technical skills to develop at work and progress to further education. It is available at intermediate (level 2 QCF) and advanced (level 3 QCF) level, each leading to: competence based qualification (NVQ), knowledge qualifications, and transferrable skills (key skills or functional skills). The Apprenticeship framework and choice of competence qualification will depend on the individual's experience and job role.
- Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (AASE)
AASE provides a structured training and development route across a number of sports for talented young athletes (aged 16-19), who have a real chance of excelling in their sport; either by competing on the world stage or securing a professional contract.
