Training for Success
After completing his BTEC in Sport at Year 13, former pupil Shaun Williams went on to complete a Personal Trainer Diploma and is now enjoying a new career at Cardinal Heenan's Lifestyle's Gym.
Shaun said "I studied Sport at 6th Form, but I knew that I didn't want to go to university and study for a degree. I play rugby to a good standard and love lifting weights. Speaking to my tutor, Andrew Allen, just confirmed what I already felt - I wanted to be a Personal Trainer! The course was excellent and I learnt so much. I couldn't have asked for more motivating or enthusiastic staff. It was exactly what I expected from this type of course."
After graduating, Shaun went straight into his job at the gym. "I was working part time in a supermarket while I was in 6th Form but I applied for a job as a Part Time Gym Instructor as soon as I finished my course and I got it. I was so happy!"
Shaun added "The role involves doing gym inductions and writing programmes for members but, because the gym has leisure facilities, I sometimes have to supervise those activities as well. I had experience training real personal training clients while on the course and I am allowed to train them outside of my shifts. So I am gradually building up my client base as well as having regular paid income."
We are all confident that Shaun will go on to further success in his career. He is a great example of how passion and hard work can help you reach your goals and we would like to congratulate him on his achievements so far. Well done Shaun!
