Coaching connexions was established in 2006, since then we have prided ourselves on offering a unique and specialist training service to all of our partner colleges, employers, apprentices and students. In June 2016, we were awarded a Grade 2 by OFSTED as part of our partners inspection (Armstrong learning).

We are now one of the leading sports training providers in the country and from September 2017 we will have 12 campuses across 7 different counties. We pride ourselves on building partnerships with employers and organisations to help ‘connect’ students to the industry as early as possible. Our success in this respect is illustrated by the following statistics from 2015/16:-

• We moved 34% of our students into employment in Sports.

• 89% of the students who completed the programme with us progressed onto a Sports Specific ‘outcome’ or higher education.

• 95% of our students enjoyed over 40 hours of Sports specific work experience.


Our programmes are designed to provide tangible exit routes for those desiring a career in the sports industry. We try to achieve this by delivering bespoke individual learning programmes that help to launch our students toward their future aspirations. Our priority is to support you in succeeding in Sports.


Our core principles are embodied in the ‘Growth mindset’ culture that we have created at Coaching Connexions; this has been highlighted in the latest Ofsted report “The culture promotes high ambition for all learners and the business, leading to a positive learning environment” To create this authentic culture, we have worked tirelessly to install our core principles into the environment, our staff and most importantly our learners in order to bring our philosophy to life.
