Angus Council gave a commitment to support the employment of Modern Apprentices in recognition of the increasing challenges of youth unemployment. Angus Active Schools were able to appoint two Modern Apprentices who will be key members of the team.
Details of Active Schools Modern Apprentices can be found on the Angus Active Schools Team page.
In partnership with Angus Alive we have provided a calendar of courses to support & develop what they are delivering in their schools and communities (some of which will provide a formal qualification) and essential governance & support for clubs. They will be led by qualified tutors, regional development officers & college lecturers.
In partnership with Dundee Active Schools & Dundee & Angus College the Sports Leadership Academy was designed to support school pupils to develop their skills & experience through sports coaching & officiating and enhancing skills for life & work. The project combines sports qualifications or awards with practical coaching and officiating experience in a school or club setting, providing vital skills to help pupils flourish in education and employment.
