Its Apprenticeship Programme gives individuals the opportunity to work and train in the sports and outdoor sector through NVQ training, following a Level 2 in Activity Leadership in the first year and Sports Development Level 3 in the second.

As a subcontractor to ACT Limited, Urdd Gobaith Cymru is both employer and learning provider, with 34 apprentices currently on its books.
