Coaching and volunteering

You can join our Coach and Volunteering Academy (CVA) which offers high quality and meaningful sports volunteering experiences alongside qualifications in coaching, volunteering and leadership. You can also gain industry experience that will enhance your personal and professional development as well as your overall employability.

Our Academy will help you to make the most of the opportunities available either within Loughborough Sport or with one of our national and international partners.

The CVA has been a huge part of my University experience and this helped my greatly when it came to applying for placement jobs. As a Fresher I successfully applied to be a Gym Activator through the volunteer academy which gave me the opportunity to gain work experience in both of the Loughborough University gyms as well as gain my Level 2 Gym Instructor qualification.
