From September 2018, EdStart will be extending our education programmes to include BTECs for 16-19 year olds, alongside work placements. BTEC’s will include Sport, Business and Health and Social Care.  Keep up to date with the start of these courses including when to apply, by following our news articles.


Existing Apprenticeship opportunities for those over 17 years old see promising sports coaches working alongside existing EdStart coaches, in primary schools across Greater Manchester. Working as part of an experienced team improving children’s fitness and wellbeing, candidates will also gain a Level 3 qualification in Primary School Sports Coaching. Many of our apprentices finish their course and become a paid member of our team, with the ultimate aim of one day becoming an EdStart Sports Coaching Franchisee.


Having EdStart across Greater Manchester means there isn’t a college that we don’t have links with. During Year 11, we work with pupils to ensure that they are aware of all the options available to them in Year 12. As well as making sure all pupils get on the right pathways, we will ensure that colleges have knowledge of any support that pupils need, including information sharing around Education and Health Care plans.
