Saracens - The Apprentice Hits Saracens

The Apprentice Hits Saracens


Whilst you are all nestling down for season 10 of the BBC’s ‘Apprentice’ the Saracens Sports Foundation have been developing their new apprenticeship programme for aspiring young coaches and have said “you’re hired!” to Barnet local Harry Eade.

The programme teaches apprentices the “Saracens Way” of delivery with focus on the clubs core values, supporting apprentices as they coach on the Foundation projects while working towards their BTEC level 3 in Sports Development, creating an alternative pathway to gaining the necessary skills and experience to progress in the Sport Development sector. 

Harry has a passion for rugby, captaining the Barnet Elizabethans U18’s, and a desire to make a difference. Harry said "post sixth form I had no clue of what I wanted to do, I hadn't applied for university and didn't know what the next step was for me. Saracens have provided me with the direction in which I want to pursue a career, by giving me the opportunity to undertake the apprenticeship."

Harry has excelled in every area he has applied himself to and has already furthered his understanding of working in the sector. Harry said of his apprenticeship “I am now in the third month of my apprenticeship, and have had a really positive experience. I enjoy how no day is the same, one day with Sarrie’s Skills Club working with young people with autism and another day going into a primary school and working with Years 3 and 4."

If there are any young people (from 16 to 18) who wish to follow the path our apprentices are on we urge you to sign up a start volunteering with one of our programmes. We are always looking for suitable candidates however spaces are limited. For more information please contact Owain Davies - Sport Development Manager – 0203 675 7245 - or email owaindavies@saracens.net
