Coaching Connexions was established in 2006, since then we have prided ourselves on offering a unique & specialist training service to all of our partner colleges, employers, apprentices & students. In June 2016 and May 2018, we were part of  Grade 2 by OFSTED inspections (Alongside Access to Music and Brighter Futures). Following a merger with Access Creative College in 2019 (Formerly Access To Music), all of our students are now funded directly by ACC and as such, we benefit from the support of the biggest private training provider in the Country.

From September 2021 we have over 350 students on roll in Liverpool, Telford, Greater Manchester and Newcastle Upon Tyne. We pride ourselves on building partnerships with employers & organisations to help ‘connect’ students to the sporting industry as early as possible.

Coaching Connexions operates as a trading identity of Access to Music Limited, which also trades as Access Creative College.

Access to Music Limited (‘The College’) has subsidiary companies, trading names and trading partnerships through which it operates.

Trading subsidiaries, trading names and trading partnerships include Access Creative College (‘ACC’), National College for Creative Industries (‘NCCI’) and Coaching Connexions.

The trading names and partnerships might have their own names or brands, but the legal entity is Access to Music Limited.


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.
