Your training with GLL College will give you the qualifications to work as a Fitness Instructor, Lifeguard and Swimming Teacher, so at the end of the 20-month programme, you’ll be able to take your career in a direction you love.

And what’s more, we run BETTER Leisure Centres and Gyms right across the UK, so you’ll be using your skills in a real leisure centre, allowing you to make industry contacts and gain confidence.

What’s in it for you:
- All your qualifications paid for

To be successful in getting this role you will need to do a swimming test which will happen on the recruitment day. For the test, you will need to complete tasks such as a timed swim of 50 metres (two lengths) within a set time, dive to the bottom of the pool to retrieve an object and swim with the object amongst others. These skills are essential to ensure you are able to safely conduct the job roles entailed within the apprenticeship. If you are unable to achieve this, your application may be unsuccessful.
