Sports Coach / Activity Professional Pioneer Sports Academy – Join us on our mission to tackle childhood obesity. The rate of childhood obesity is increasingly on the rise, so much so that 1 in 5 children leave primary school obese. Not only does this place tremendous pressure on the NHS, it significantly reduces the quality of a life a child has. Obese children have lower levels of confidence and self esteem and are at higher risk of being bullied due to their weight. Studies have shown that healthier and more active children perform better at school.
We are looking positive role models that can help to inspire children to lead active and healthier lives. You will not only be building positive relationships with children but will also be working closely with teachers, senior leadership teams and parents to provide the best possible environment for children to thrive.
