Aquaterra Leisure Apprentices
Aquaterra Leisure is a charitable trust that aims to improve quality of life and health through leisure, fitness and sports activities that are accessible for all. The organisation has three main facilities in Bath and employs around 100 full-time staff there. Each of the three sites annually recruits 3 sport and recreation apprentices and one customer service apprentice is also taken on. Fifty per cent of Aquaterra's operational staff in Bath are either current of former apprentices. The organisation likes to go the extra mile with the training it provides -- not just offering the basics of the NVQ and technical certificates but also a range of professional qualifications like First Aid, Defibrillation, Gym Instructor or ASA Swimming Teacher. The apprentices also do internal courses that include fire, reception, health and safety and customer care training. Over the next 12 months, Aquaterra plans to increase the number of its verifiers and assessors in its Bath facilities -- currently each site has 1 internal verifier and 3 assessors -- to ensure a one-to-one approach. It also aims to increase the current 9 sport and recreation and 1 customer service Apprenticeships to 11 sport and recreation, 3 customer service and 2 exercise and fitness Apprenticeships.
