Become an LYR Apprentice 

Are you between the age of 18-24yrs and looking to inspire the next generation of young sports people? We are recruiting more apprentice coaches, to start in September 2017.


Applications close 9th August 2017



For the second year running, we've teamed up with Coach Core, the national coaching scheme run by The Royal Foundation. The programme offers a one year paid placement with LYR, to train and work as a qualified rowing coach across London. We have had a great experience with last year’s apprentices and cannot wait to work with some new and enthusiastic budding coaches.

Apprentices will receive:
·         30hrs per week paid employment
·         Practical coaching experience and skill development
·         Travel expenses included
·         Level 2 rowing coaching qualification
·         Mentoring by LYR coaches
Over the year you will be coaching 11-18 year olds with a range of abilities, gaining crucial experience alongside friendly coaches as you prepare to qualify for your Level 2. This is a fantastic opportunity for personal development that could enhance future employment prospects. In addition, once qualified you will be able to coach young people independently and earn more per hour than unqualified coaches.
Joe, one of the 2016-17 Apprentice coaches said on his experience:
'I have definitely learnt about how to build professional working relationships, working as part of a team. The experience has made me more confident in my communication skills and given me the knowledge that I can succeed on a fairly steep learning curve. It has also given me a skill to use during my university holidays or as a future career.'
