NWUK have an exciting opportunity for anyone based in London who wants to train to become a Community Instructor, Full Instructor and or become Exercise Referral qualified. We have been accepted as providers to a scheme that enable learners to get 75% of the training funded by the Mayors Legacy. The funding is designed to leave a lasting sporting legacy from the Olympics by training people to deliver activities into their community. All that they ask is that in return the learner volunteers up to 25 hours (in total) of time to a project in one of the Boroughs. This is easily achieved and helps them to practice and develop their skills as Instructors.
