Who we are

Training & apprenticeships to inspire

We are a RoATP registered training provider who work in partnership with employers to provide a complete package of support for your apprenticeship recruitment needs.

We create apprenticeships and training that develop the learner and enhance the employer organisation and individual. One cannot happen without the other. This is why we place equal importance on looking after both the learner and the organisation with every placement.

With over 20 years of experience drawn from the business of sport our values of participation, friendship and equality are at the heart of everything we do.

As part of our adult education division we deliver short courses to individuals and groups that energise a passion for sport from grassroots to elite level.

Delivering apprenticeships for an education setting 

Apprenticeships are a highly cost-effective way to recruit TAs and sports coaches for your school or college. At Ignite we do this through the Teaching Assistant, Community Activator Coach and Sports Coach standard, modified to PE specialisms to bring additional skills to your staff unit.

We are unique in the depth of service we provide from recruitment, programme development and through to career enhancement after completion. This means your investment stays with you, enhancing the overall educational offering of your organisation.
