You can add an additional revenue-stream to your business and enhance your profits.
It’s an ideal way of not only recruiting new staff but screening them beforehand.
An Education Academy attached to your business sets you well apart from your competitors.
More then six years ago now, Wellbeing Fitness had become a fully established business. We had six training studios, employed 14 staff and delivered nearly 1000 personal training sessions a month. Because one of our directors, Ian Spiby had spent over thirty years as a lecturer in teacher training at a university, we decided that we were in a position to offer a Level 3 Personal Training Diploma.
It would be for people who either wanted a career in the fitness industry or simply those who were keen on training and wanted to take their own practice to a higher level. And what’s more, we were in an ideal position to do it – we were at the heart of the industry, up-to-date and actually DOING the job of personal training whereas from what we gathered, many other providers from colleges and the like were not only old-fashioned but the staff had frequently never taken a personal training session with a real client for years!
So we began investigating the best way to go about it. The result was the establishment of the Wellbeing Fitness Education Centre. We quickly dismissed the traditional validating organisations. Not only did they make you jump through endless administrative hoops but IanS, with his long experience of conducting validations, saw that their standards were simply not rigorous enough. If we were going to offer a Personal Training Diploma, we wanted it to be hands-on, relevant and accessible so that students who passed the course would be fully confident to stand up by the side of other professionals such as osteopaths and physiotherapists in the health and fitness industry.
Over the next 18 months, we teamed up with ThinkTree Hub, an international validating body - and together with them and an insurance company, Holistic Insurance, we set about creating a gold-standard course. The icing on the cake came when we appointed Kieran Sharpe as our Head of Education, a highly qualified man with years of experience in both devising and teaching health and fitness courses.
The Level 3 Diploma was a huge success and this led us to license it to the owners of other gyms and fitness providers. Again, the success rate has been phenomenal and we now have over 50 businesses all over the country delivering our course and adding considerably to their revenue at the same time.
ALL students who complete the course are GUARANTEED professional working insurance. The reason we guarantee insurance is because there are so many sub-standard training courses offered on the internet which would not be recognised by insurance companies and so inevitably they would not be legally permitted to work.
You don’t have to jump through endless hoops to get your course up and running. From the moment you sign your license agreement with us, you can be running your first course with a complement of students within 69 days.
