The annual Coach Core awards ceremony took place on Friday at the Kia Oval, London. We are extremely pleased to announce that there were 3 winners from the Leicester and Leicestershire programme.

Active Together in partnership with Coach Core and Lifetime Training deliver the Apprenticeship Programme locally which supports 16-24 years olds currently not in education, employment, or training.

MVP winner - Luke Green (Active Together Workforce Development Officer).This award celebrates someone in the Coach Core network who has made a significant contribution to their mission, has demonstrated Coach Core values and deserves to be recognised for their support and dedication to the programme.

As central partner, our very own Luke pulled together the Leicestershire programme and led them through going into Covid lockdown just weeks after starting. He knows all the apprentices personally, has secured extra funding for the programme and is committed to building and growing apprenticeship work across Leicestershire. Congratulations Luke!

Luke said: "I am incredible proud to be part of Coach Core and receive the 'Most Valuable Person' Award on behalf of all the amazing partners and individuals who work tirelessly to deliver the Leicester-Shire programme. I would like to say a massive thank you to all who have supported this amazing programme. Brogan taking home the 'Learning Coach of the Year' Award and Aura wining the converted 'Apprentice of The Year' shows the power of what we can achieve working together as partners in Leicester-Shire".

Learning Coach of the Year winner - Brogan Jones This award celebrates the educator who has surpassed expectations in support of the apprentices they are teaching.

The first Coach Core programme in Leicester started & the country went immediately into lockdown. Brogan went above & beyond to ensure the apprentices stayed engaged, taking particular care over those with digital poverty, home schooling & health issues. Congratulations Brogan!

Apprentice of the Year winner- Aura Chacón Godoy. This award celebrates a Coach Core apprentice who has surpassed expectations in their programme.

Aura started her apprenticeship at Leicestershire County Cricket Club never having played cricket before!
