Every Learner is Different | Jodie’s Story
Jodie really enjoys travelling; she likes to leave the country as much as possible. Fitness is also one of Jodie’s hobbies, which is ideal when you look at her career path. She also calls herself a bit of a ‘music junkie’ as she likes Musical Theatre and going to watch West End shows when she can.
Life before Brooks and Kirk
For around 10 years, Jodie worked in the Fitness Industry. She started off as a gym instructor and had lots of different roles in leisure. Eventually, Jodie worked her way up to managing a Fitness and Leisure site.
It was during this time that she decided to go into training, as she was involved in a lot of it through her management job. She realised she had quite a passion for it, and this led Jodie down the teaching and assessing route.
Finding Brooks and Kirk
A simple google search of ‘Teaching and Assessing courses’ and Brooks and Kirk came up at the top. A call was made to enquire, and Jodie was enrolled on our courses from there.
“It’s quite a lot of work and there’s quite a lot of written assignments, but I didn’t find them overly difficult. I really liked the online learning system and that you could upload the work on to there. The resources on there were really helpful too. So the online system worked really well for me, I could just type my assignments up and upload them online.
Overall, the course was really useful, I only had to take minimal time off work. It was really informative and laid out really well. In fact, I thought it was that useful, I actually referred my friend!”
Review left on our Facebook Page
Excellent, professional company. Work was always marked quickly with development feedback. I got my dream teaching and assessing job just after I finished my course so I couldn’t recommend these guys highly enough!
Life after the Assessor Course
Now, Jodie works for a company called Lifetime. She got the job just as she qualified and so has been working there since September 2016.
Jodie works full time as a regional trainer and assessor. She assesses and trains work-based learners in the fitness industry such as apprentices, training to become gym instructors, lifeguards etc.
At the time of this case study, Jodie’s area was based in the Bristol and Wiltshire area. Her original area was Bristol/Weston- super-Mare but it had expanded.
