FA Women’s Football Apprentice

Salary: TBC based on experience and qualifications

Hours: 37 hours per week

Contract: Fixed term (16 months)

The FA and AoC Sport apprenticeship programme is an exciting opportunity to be involved in the rapid growth of women and girls’ football across England. Working as part of a national network of apprentices, you will be tasked with engaging 100 girls/women in the game who are new to football both at Exeter College and in the local community. You will have the opportunity to work with local partners, such as County FA’s, professional women’s clubs and grassroots teams. Alongside your fellow Women’s Football Apprentices, you will come together over the course of the year at the home of English football – Wembley Stadium and St George’s Park – to develop yourself personally and professionally with the help of sector-leading experts organised by AoC Sport. An ambassador for the women’s game, you will learn the ropes of football development, make contacts in the world of women’s football and inspire the next generation of girls and women to play football.

Based at Exeter College, your working week will be spent managing projects, planning and delivering events such as FA Women’s Football Week, meeting with local football stakeholders, recruiting and managing female volunteers to help deliver activity, delivering football activity to college students and primary/secondary students, all the while monitoring and evaluating your work.

For more information please see the Job Description.

During your time with us you will work towards the apprenticeship standards for the Community Sport and Health Officer (level 3) qualification, completing the end point assessments after 16 months. This will usually manifest itself as one day a week spent learning, writing coursework and completing all necessary aspects of the qualification as well as preparing for the end point assessment. Support and guidance will be given both by Exeter College and the FA throughout this process.

The successful applicant must be available to attend a national training event on 20th – 22nd August 2019. The venue is yet to be confirmed.
