Nikki Banns currently works at the Nuffield Health and Fitness Gym in Aylesbury. She works as a full time personal trainer providing members with one to one sessions, performing health MOT’s and running fitness classes. Nikki wanted to further her career prospects by completing a Level 4 Certificate in Education, to teach and educate the next generation of personal trainers.
As part of her course Nikki has been attending Aylesbury College, observing the Sports lessons to see the theory she has learnt put in practice. As a volunteer teacher, she has been able to interact with students, provided support within the lessons and apply what she has learnt from her qualification into a working environment.
Nikki has enjoyed the experience so far, and said “I especially enjoyed networking with people that don’t work in the same industry as me”. She will soon be teaching adult classes at the College, where she will independently lead a class utilising her new skills.
