Ben came to the Traineeship programme having finished school without career direction or a clear pathway. During initial discussions with Ben, it became clear he has a passion for sport and education and already has skills suited to these areas. He excelled amongst his peers and thrived in the field of sport delivery.
This success provided Ben with a clear understanding of the direction he wanted to take his career. He’s transformed from someone who knew what he enjoyed but lacked clarity and direction, to someone who has a plan for the future.
Matthew Jones from Achieve More Training commented: “We were able to work with Ben to support his career development and identify the most logical and suitable progression. Ben is a very 'hands on' learner who thrives in an environment where is able to learn by doing and so an apprenticeship was the obvious next step.
“Ben began to work as a football coach for a local organisation to gain experience and put his learnt knowledge into practice. Ben also secured a role in a local Primary School, Ysgol Escob Morgan, as a Sport Apprentice completing the PE in School Sport Level 3 qualification.
“Ben is excelling within his apprenticeship and has taken a leadership role within the school in relation to sport and PE delivery, demonstrating his excellent planning, communication and interpersonal skills.”
