Upon Referring A Young Person


Most importantly, we are looking to support young people who are motivated, punctual and committed to gaining their Functional Skills or Sports Coaching qualification. As the courses are fast-paced they will require a high level of engagement from the young person to ensure the best possible grade is achieved.


Referring does NOT guarantee a young person a place. We have a limited number of spaces for this opportunity.
