North East school-leavers interested in pursuing a career in the fitness industry are being invited to apply for funded apprenticeships offered by a regional training course provider.
Successful applicants for the Fit Training courses will follow in the footsteps of hundreds of other young people who have completed the popular programme and gone on to pursue successful careers in the industry.
Among them is Domanick Hoben, a dyslexic teenager from Westerhope, Newcastle, who did not feel school provided him with the help he needed to start him off on the right career path.
After finishing his Fit Training apprenticeship, he now works full time as a fitness instructor at Springslite in Kingston Park.
“I would highly recommend a Fit Training apprenticeship for anyone who is looking at a career in the fitness industry,” said Domanick.
“I couldn’t have made a better decision. You get to work while you learn and it’s been a huge boost to my confidence, which was lacking at school.”
Working in partnership with Ratbone UK, the support organisation for young people, Fit Training is able to offer fully funded apprenticeship opportunities to young people aged 16 to 24, who are placed with employers and given tutoring and support.
