Careers in sport can involve a lot more than becoming a professional footballer. YouTuber Ali-A spent the day as an apprentice football coach to learn more.

Ali chatted to apprentices about the course they have chosen and what it involves. We also hear from their tutors and staff at Soccer Coaching Limited to find out where a football coaching apprenticeship can lead. As well as English and maths skills, apprentices learn about all aspects of sport - ranging from nutrition to leadership skills.
