Develop your club

Apprentices add affordable & sustainable skills to your club and its culture

There is no more cost-effective way to bring new skills to your club than through apprenticeships. And the options available to you at a elite sport and community level have never been better.

From recruitment, through training and completion and into further development, we provide a fully managed service for the entire learner journey for both the club and the apprentice. Our aim is to make the process simple and straight forward so you can focus on the enjoyment and management of sport and the development of your club.


Ignite Training has provided us with a structured way to provide high quality formal training and upskilling to our team via an apprentice programme which has delivered tremendous value. The whole process has been straight forward, the attention to detail and client care first class and most importantly it has given us a format to provide extra training and a qualification for colleagues while adding value to our business

Sport at heart

We are a business built on sporting principles of participation and equality

We are a RoATP registered training provider, and our business is rooted in sport.

Our experience means you can rest assured we will support you and your apprentice through the entire journey from recruitment to completion and beyond as they integrate into your club.

We have been doing this since 1999 so we know how to make it work for you and your apprentice. We know where you need the most support and when we can take a step back and acknowledge that you’re in charge.

Sports clubs need skills beyond the sport itself so we offer standards to benefit the business of your sport too:

Community Activator Coach

Digital Marketer

Junior Content Producer

Sporting Excellence Professional

Community Health Officer

Learning & Skills teacher

Are you ready?

We know your club is unique, so let’s talk

At Ignite, we recognise that no two apprenticeships are the same. In fact, we actively make sure they aren’t because that’s how we make the apprentice fit your community.

It all begins with a conversation.

If you send us your details we will listen as you tell us what you want to achieve. We will then help you embark on one of the most exciting club developments you will do this year.
