West Ham United Foundation celebrates Coach Core project

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be visiting the Coach Core Apprentices this week in celebration of another successful cohort beginning the programme.

West Ham United Foundation plays an important role in working with young people in East London and Essex, linking together perfectly with the Coach Core programme. The Foundation have been involved with the programme since 2016, taking on a total of nine apprentices. 

Coach Core is an 18-month apprenticeship that allows participants to gain a Coaching Level Two Qualification, as well as a range of other qualifications and experiences. This gives local young people the chance to develop a career pathway for themselves. Out of the nine apprentices on the cohort so far, six have been employed via the Foundation to continue their journeys as sessional community coaches.


Education Manager for the West Ham United Foundation, Temisan Williams, will be attending the event, which is run in conjunction with Active Essex, to help discuss the way this programme has developed to help change people’s lives and creating a long-lasting legacy.

The Duke and Duchess front the programme and have visited previously to congratulate graduates and witness sessions in action. 

Speaking ahead of the event Temisan said: “I am thoroughly looking forward to the event which will allow us to see the budding next generation of community and elite coaches as well as share our numerous Coach Core success stories with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.”
