LYR is part of the Coach Core Apprenticeship programme, in conjunction with the Royal Foundation and a number of other partners in London. 

Coach Core inspires young people to build a career in sports coaching, giving them the qualifications, skills and expertise to be successful and more employable, whilst also becoming role models for their students and the wider community. 

The programme strives to improve the availability and quality of sports coaching, whilst creating much needed employment for young people. For LYR it supports the need to develop high quality rowing coaches to deliver our rowing activity both indoor and on water.
