Apprentice Coach Offered Full Time Coaching Role

Seventeen year old Codie Nichols, Newcastle United Foundation’s first female apprentice, has been offered a full time coaching role with the charity.

The aspiring coach started as a player when she was 12 and has been involved in the Foundation’s Female Coach Mentoring programme, supported by Sport Newcastle, for the last two years. She was also the winner of the Rising Star (Girls) Award at the Foundation’s Annual Dinner last year.

Codie is studying at Tynemet College while working as an Apprentice Coach, delivering sessions such after schools clubs, girls only sessions and disability football sessions.   She has recently completed block two of her Football Level 2 Coaching badge and will start block three in April.

In order to further develop her skills Codie will work towards Level one and two Disability Coaching badges, before her Apprenticeship ends in June and she takes up her full time Community Coach position.

Codie Nicols said: “”Newcastle United Foundation have given me so many amazing opportunities since I started my apprenticeship. I enjoy it so much, it’s the best career to be in as I have a huge passion for football.  Everyday is something different which is one of the many reasons I love my job. I’m overjoyed that I have been offered a full time community coach role that will start in the next few months. I can’t wait to keep progressing with my coaching qualifications and continue to learn from the other coaches.  I am very grateful for every opportunity the Foundation has given me” 

Lisa Bell, Senior Project Co-ordinator at Newcastle United Foundation, added: “Codie has been really passionate about coaching since day one and has a great attitude.  She has the potential to be an outstanding coach and we are very proud of just how far she has come in such a short space of time. Well done Codie!”
