Stand out from the crowd and start your journey as a Personal Trainer! With approved employers, PT Skills provides a unique initiative to provide aspiring trainers with the skills they need to secure and start a sustainable and rewarding career though our Trainee Scheme. 


An optional education and training programme with work experience, our Trainee PT scheme focuses on providing students with the skills, experience and confidence that the major gym chains are looking for. Developed in conjunction with recruitment research, the programme helps not just to educate new Personal Trainers but to also prepare them for their future career with realistic advice on what they can expect as they join this flourishing industry.

Developing personal training skills is at the core of the high-quality work experience available for 18 year olds and over, currently studying one of our PT Diploma Options. Within this programme students will develop the skills which fitness industry employers are looking for and will hone the skills of a successful trainer such as; communication, teamwork, health and safety, delivering gym inductions, leading group classes, motivating members and customer service. We also help with job searches and interview techniques. 


During the programme, students benefit from the opportunity to develop these PT skills in a live gym environment with an active personal training team, and gain a valuable reference from a work placement.
