a TRIO of budding fitness experts have been given a helping hand by The Dome.

Tara Hill, 20, Kieran Jepson, 19 and Helen Hinchcliffe, 20, have been snapped up on a six-month training programme to become community engagement officers.

All three will receive industry-level tuition, gaining their level two fitness instructor and coaching qualification plus pool lifeguard coaching, first aid and disability awareness training.

Tara said: ““It’s great working at The Dome . I have learnt lots of different skills and had the chance to try out many diverse roles.

“Throughout my time at The Dome I have worked in the fitness suites, on the ice and on poolside.

“This placement has enabled me to work with some of the most talented individuals in the sports and leisure industry and ultimately learn from the very best.”

Jon Whiteley, head of leisure at the Doncaster Culture and Leisure Trust managed site, said: “We aim to help those hoping to further their careers by supporting them with effective schemes designed to help them to reach the next rung on the career ladder.

“Their training will provide them with excellent industry knowledge in addition to valuable life skills and the three talented individuals will be offered a great opportunity to apply for a position at the venue once they have completed their course.”

The training drive at The Dome is funded by the Government’s National Skills Academy programme, which supports a range of training and qualifications relevant to different sectors.
