The Team Bath Vocational & Applied Skills Team (VAST) has teamed up with online training provider LEAP Academy to offer students and the wider University of Bath community the chance to gain health and fitness qualifications.

Level 2 Gym Instructing Certificate, Level 3 Gym Instructing and Personal Training Diploma, and Level 4 Advanced Sports Nutrition Certificate are among the vocational courses on offer at a 30 per cent discounted rate through the new partnership.

Miles Peyton, Head of Commercial Sales at the University of Bath, said: “We are delighted to welcome LEAP Academy into the VAST network. Our team of elite practitioners and educators already deliver high-quality courses in such areas as sports massage, first aid and lifeguarding, and this range of health and fitness qualifications will strengthen our impressive portfolio.

“We are always looking to offer students, staff and the Team Bath community the chance to upskill and gain qualifications which will either help them in their existing role and studies or open the door to a career in the health and fitness industry. This partnership with LEAP Academy will, appropriately, provide a springboard for many people to take that next step.”

Mitch Henchoz, Managing Director of LEAP Academy, added: “What sets LEAP apart from other online training provider is our high-quality, video-rich content that is delivered by well-known fitness professionals. You will be taught by the likes of Bradley Simmonds, Talilla Henchoz and James Middleton, who help keep the course content engaging and interesting while also sharing their personal tips for succeeding in the industry.

“All the LEAP qualifications have been designed and written by academics, accredited by a leading awarding organisation and delivered by inspirational leaders who have first-hand experience and successful careers in the industry. The courses are delivered through an online learning portal where participants can access all the content, assessments and tutor support remotely.”

People who complete the courses will also have access to job listings, brand discounts and Q&As with industry experts and employers for continued support after they qualify.
