‘I started as a lifeguard working at a small facility and worked my way up to team leader, supervisor and now I am managing larger, busier facilities. Skills Active have helped me at each stage of my career and have offered up to date training and qualifications for myself and my staff. The staff are really friendly, helpful and always willing to assist with questions and requests. I think training while working is the best way to learn and Skills Active’s range of qualifications makes it possible’.
