Sporting Futures Training

Sporting Futures Training known as ‘The Teachers Training Team’ is a multi-award winning Training Provider. We are an innovative, dynamic team of experienced School Teachers, Subject Leaders and Senior managers driven by a desire to create opportunities and raise aspirations through Apprenticeships for all individuals. This ethos of Sporting Futures Training is at the heart of our delivery and our focus continues to be on offering experiences that will allow for our learners to aim high in both life and work.

Our programmes aim to create pathways and opportunities into predominately Teaching and Teaching Assistant roles through both PE and classroom roles. We deliver highly successful apprenticeships in

  • PE and School Sport (level 2 & 3)
  • Teaching Assistant (level 3)

In response to employer demand we have also launched apprenticeships in:

  • Level 5 Operations Department Manager
  • Level 3 Event Assistant
  • Level 3 Learning Mentor


Our focus continues to be the innovative delivery of school – based Apprenticeships and advocating the opportunities for schools to maximise the use of their Apprenticeship Levy.

We continue to work with non-levy schools to show the value of Apprenticeships within their setting and where possible we are engaged in working with large employers to consider Levy Transfer to non-levy schools and organisations.

Our key focus is to enhance the provision of Apprenticeship opportunities within all school settings and to this aim we work alongside schools to offer bespoke Apprenticeship Training opportunities. Working to upskill existing staff and to develop and train new recruits.

In Physical Education we have an embedded pathway from an Intermediate level leading into an Advanced Apprenticeship. The creative development of alternative pathways for our learners is ongoing and we are passionate about securing appropriate exit routes that ensure every learner is given the opportunity to reach their full potential.

We deliver the classroom Teaching Assistant Apprenticeship and work closely with our Employers to ensure the delivery is appropriate for the development of all staff and also fulfils the school’s workforce development plan.

In addition to the above we are now working with schools to review opportunities in line with other Apprenticeship Standards and our aim is to contextualise standards to a school setting. One such example is the delivery of the Level 5 Operations Manager. We are currently working with a Hertfordshire Academy Trust to deliver a bespoke Aspiring Senior Leader Apprenticeship and we are involved in a DFE case study related to this delivery.
