Coach the Coach graduates awarded sessional coaching contracts
Callum Corkhill, 17 from Killingworth, and Lewis James, 17 from Morpeth, have been awarded sessional coaching contracts with Newcastle United Foundation after graduating from their Coach the Coach Course.
Coach the Coach is run in partnership with Newcastle College and is suitable for young people aged 16-18 interested in a career in coaching. This course and the BTEC Futsal programme, both work towards a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Sport.
Callum and Lewis displayed outstanding commitment to the course and a real talent for coaching which resulted in Foundation staff nominating them for sessional coaching roles at the charity.
“I wanted a career in coaching and I saw that Coach the Coach, through the Foundation, had a great pathway” said Callum, “I knew I would have to work hard to stand out so I could be considered for a job. The best thing about the course is learning new coaching techniques from the Foundation staff, who have a lot of experience between them.”
Lewis added “I was always hopeful that I might get a job with the Foundation – I’m so happy. I have got a job I love from doing this course. I feel privileged to be working for the Foundation. It’s a great course and I would recommend it to anyone!”
“Through Coach the Coach I have gained lots of coaching knowledge and developed my social skills, which will be really useful when I’m out in the community communicating with different people. I feel really happy and excited to be working with the Foundation. I am also really excited about their vision for the future and it is something that I want to be involved with for many years to come.”
The next Coach the Coach and BTEC Futsal programme intake, in partnership with Newcastle College, is in September – places are still available! For more details click here
