Greenhouse Sports aims to develop life skills for young people in London’s most disadvantaged communities through outstanding, intensive sports programmes delivered by inspirational coaches. We use the power of sport to inspire and motivate young people so they can reach their full potential.

Our coaches work full time in mainstream secondary and Special Educational Needs (SEN) schools – as well as community clubs – to provide sport programmes across the capital that equip young people for life.

In addition you will be required to develop holiday provision during the school holidays.

As a coach you will also work closely with the Impact Team to collect high-quality data to demonstrate the effectiveness of what we do and to quantify the difference we make to our young people.  Data is collected at designated times throughout the year and includes; case studies, questionnaires, skills and fitness testing. Our coaches also review the young peoples’ progress and set targets for their future development.

The Person
