Nic Ashcroft is currently on a work placement with St Helens Council working in the Queens Park
Leisure centre. Nic started studying a level 2 in sport with Progress in April of this year at our St Helens centre. He has been quick to learn and now attends his placement every Thursday.

Nic is enjoying working in the sector and has already had a taste of what it takes to work in sport and active leisure. Nic has already supported clients in the gym along with inductions, delivered children’s coaching sessions, supported on pool duty and kept up with the general cleaning and housekeeping of the centre.

Nic commented: “Working in the leisure centre has allowed me to taste different areas of working and this will only develop me and my knowledge further, allowing me to progress into full time employment”.
