Coaching and volunteering

Join our Coach and Volunteering Academy (CVA) to access high quality and meaningful sports volunteering experiences, alongside qualifications in coaching, volunteering and leadership.

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.

You'll gain industry experience that will enhance your personal and professional development as well as your overall employability. We work closely with the University careers service to help you to identify and get your dream job, be that on a city trading floor or in a more sport related role.

We offer a range of opportunities for both students and community members to get involved in a number of different strands, all designed to develop and enhance both employability and softer skills needed for a successful career in the sports industry and beyond.

Opportunities within CVA include:

Coaching
Officiating
Event Management
Gym, Health and Fitness
Media, Marketing and Communications
Performance Support
Volunteer Zambia
Sport committee positions
Loughborough Sport Ambassadors

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.
