“I started my apprenticeship journey with MPCT 2015 to further my knowledge and competence in the exercise and fitness industry. I have always been passionate about fitness and I saw this as a great way to further my career. As a parent, the opportunity to earn whilst I was learning suited my lifestyle.
During my apprenticeship I not only gained qualifications in exercise and fitness but also how to confidently apply them in my everyday work. Once my foundation apprenticeship was complete I was able to progress onto the Level 3 Personal Trainer framework with MPCT. This has enabled me to set up a number of new classes in the leisure centre, the highlight of which being the Mother and Baby class.
I highly recommend apprenticeship training due to the practical skills that you able to develop in a real work environment. I felt supported throughout the apprenticeship programme from both MPCT and my employer.
In 2017 I won MPCT Apprentice of the Year at their annual awards ceremony. This
was a really proud moment for me and my family.”

“I started my training with MPCT on their Sports Academy programme in RCT. This course helped me by improving my employability skills through the context of sport and active leisure. Whilst with the academy I was part of their Gifted & Talented programme, which enabled me to access work placement opportunities and gain industry recognised qualifications in exercise and fitness.
With these qualifications I then enrolled on the MPCT Apprenticeship Programm and gained employment at J2 Health and Fitness. Whilst completing my apprenticeship framework I have also gained additional qualifications outside the framework with MPCT in circuit training and spin which has allowed my employer to increase their class variety.
The next step for me is to start my Level 3 Apprenticeship in Personal Training. Iam really looking forward to this as I enjoy seeing individuals develop.”
