The Apprenticeship in Activity Leadership & Gym is designed for those individuals who wish to gain a broad, but solid foundation to allow them to follow a career in the outdoor sector or in the active leisure sector as fitness leaders, coaches and activity leaders.
This qualification is coupled with the Level 2 Fitness Instructing (Gym) qualification, perfect for those who want to assist members in a gym environment. This includes learning on how to maintain health, safety and welfare in a variety of fitness environments, including the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, how to programme safe and effective exercise for a range of clients, the health benefits of physical activity and the importance of healthy eating, how to communicate with clients effectively, and motivate clients to adhere to an exercise programme.
In the outdoors, at Level 2, roles will tend to be working with straight-forward groups in less hazardous activities, often in controlled environments. In active leisure, roles covered by this framework tend to be more of a community focus, and apprentices tend to be employed in community settings as activity leaders, sports coaches and fitness leaders.
This apprenticeship framework is set at level 2.
This apprenticeship takes a minimum of 12 months to complete.
