Case Study: Amelia - Team Leader
Amelia has been with Active Luton for 2 years and has progressed from her role as Activity Leadership Apprentice to Team Leader. She is now finishing her Level 3 NVQ in Leisure Management and tells us about her journey:
‘This experience was a very good opportunity for me to gain more skills, qualifications and also get paid for it at the same time. I enjoyed learning about management: how to deal with customers and how the centre is run. It is a massive achievement for me. I am very happy because all of the hard work that I put in over the last 2 years has shown I am dedicated to the job and Active Luton and have been rewarded for it.’
Case Study: Gemma - Activity Assistant | Lifeguard | Hydra Assistant Coordinator
Gemma has been in her current position for 9 months but has been with Active Luton for 3 years! Since starting at reception, she has acquired her NPLQ and become a Level 1 and Level 2 swimming teacher.
‘I started this apprenticeship because my goal was to become a manager. It has allowed me to work and learn in a variety of areas, which was surprising for me. One of the things I am very proud of is my first rescue. I felt very confident about it due to all the training provided. When I first got offered the job, I felt very happy and nervous but I received a lot of support from everyone throughout all the roles I’ve undertaken.’
