Work Experience with AVSSP

Towards the end of the school year we welcome a handful of selected students to come and do their work experience with us. Volunteering with AVSSP provides a unique opportunity to gain expertise in a variety of areas within a sporting environment. Students are thrown in the mix of the busiest, yet most exciting, term of the school year and help us run events such as Tough Runners and Ozzy Days as well as working with our coaches and assisting them during their lessons. To have the chance to broaden your knowledge base and improve your employability skills, contact info@avssp.co.uk to volunteer.

This is what our previous work experience candidates got up to during their time with us:

“I did work experience with AVSSP when I was in year 10 for a week, shadowing different coaches both in infant and junior schools. I was interested to do work experience with AVSSP because I was doing level 1&2 BTEC Sport GCSE at school and wanted more experience In school deliveries. I enjoyed being with 2 different coaches throughout the week, because I was able to see how they taught children differently. I now work full time for AVSSP as a PE & School Sport Activator.”

“I was a sports leader during my time at Heanor Gate Spencer Academy and often volunteered with AVSSP. I chose to do my work experience with them because i was interested in the sporting industry and liked AVSSP’s approach to delivery. During my time at AVSSP I assisted with the set up and delivery of Tough Runners, World Cup events and day to day lessons with coaches. I knew it was what I wanted to do and now I work full time as a Sports Development Apprentice at AVSSP.”
