Saracens - Foundation - Apprenticeships

The Saracens Sport Foundation apprenticeship programme is designed for young people (both girls and boys) aged 17 – 18*(Day of enrolment) with the incentive of earning whilst you are learning.

The apprenticeship is unique in a way that it is combined with Virtual Learning UK, which means all coursework that takes place on an online website platform.

  • Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Sports Development
  • Level 3 NVQ in Employment Awareness
  • Level 3 NVQ Certificate in Managing Sports Volunteers
  • Level 3 Btec Diploma in Sports Development

In addition to these qualifications you will be able to gain valuable experience working alongside full time Saracens members of staff across a variety of different programmes such as; disability sport, School of Cheer and tag rugby programmes. We currently have a number of apprenticeship opportunities within the Sports Development team and the Dance Development Team.
