The Community Boxing Apprenticeship Programme is in contention for the ‘Inclusive Coaching’ award whilst, Gabrielle Reid has been shortlisted for the ‘Young Coach of the Year’ award.
This is the second year of the Apprenticeship Programme in partnership with Coach Core and its aim is to upskill young people (aged between 16-25) from all over the country during a fifteen month period.
The first initiative involved ten youngsters whilst the 2023 cohort has offered a further three roles – one of which includes a coveted position based at England Boxing’s head office in the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield.
The UK Coaching Awards is a national celebration event, seen as the most prestigious in the coaching community. It was initially created to celebrate the amazing contributions coaches make both physically and mentally.
The awards highlight the great work that the UK’s coaching workforce does and their impact at every level of sport and physical activity.
