The programme offers disabled people, free training and qualifications and a work placement, where students gain experience and work to engage more disabled people in the local community to get physically active. The placement is a compulsory part of the programme and candidates must be available for all training and placement dates.

Successful candidates will gain YMCAfit Level 2 Gym Instructor qualification and a CPD Module in Function Fitness to deliver inclusive exercise.

Work placements will be undertaken prior and after training. Candidates are invited to state preferences when they apply and centres are allocated after enrolment. Qualification certificates are withheld until the placement and community engagement tasks have been completed.
