What our Learners Say
I started with a PT diploma and then went for the management apprenticeship. It was a great experience and i'm now managing my own gym with a full management qualification and my own successful PT business. Highly recommend!
I felt like an individual with individual needs. Everything has been delivered to my needs and I have learned so much already. Not just on the apprenticeship, but so much more!
I've learned more in three months than what I learned at school! It's been a great experience so far and i'm learning so much. I am 16 and went straight to TVA from school and i've never looked back.
