On Monday the 4th of September, the Wigan Warriors Community Foundation were invited down to Manchester City Football Club’s HQ for a special meeting with His Royal Highness, Prince Harry.
The invitation was received by The Royal Foundation, on behalf of their Coach Core apprenticeship programme. The Coach Core programme sets out to inspire young people to build a career in sports coaching, giving them the qualifications, skills and expertise to be successful and more employable, whilst also becoming role models for their students and the wider community.
Prince Harry welcomed the Foundation alongside other community partners, in a short Q and A before visiting and talking with a number of the course apprentices who were coaching local children.
Moving forward the Community Foundation will be exploring the possibilities of delivering the apprenticeship scheme alongside Coach Core.
