Side-Steppers: How to Change Your Career

Here at The Training Room, we help people all over the country become qualified and support them to find work in their new career. Though open to anybody, we do focus on 6 key social groups: side-steppers, upskillers, education leavers, working mums, job seekers and ex-military. A side-stepper is someone who is thinking of changing their career, whether they’ve only just started or been in an industry for 30 years. It is someone who may feel lethargic and find their work uninspiring, unsuited to them and, above all, not what they want to spend their life doing.

Tailoring Strength And Conditioning Training Around The Menstrual Cycle

Women have a long history of being shamed into silence about their periods and, especially within the sports sector, matters related to menstruation have been largely ignored. Many, in fact, believe that participating in sports during menstruation can harm women’s health, hinder performance and therefore, they should avoid physical activity altogether during this time. However, this could not be further from the truth, so I aim to explain why strength and conditioning (S&C) training can be incredibly beneficial for women and how personal trainers can tailor S&C programmes to better suit an individual’s needs.

Getting the Skills You Need for a Job in IT

Regardless of what industry you are contemplating working in, all job roles expect you to have skills; which you may have heard being called “soft skills”, “21st-century skills” or “applied skills”, these are the non-technical skills, ones that you don’t study and aren’t related to just one field. Employees can hire a student to train, but if you don’t possess soft skills, you will discover it becomes hard to stay employed. If you are wondering what these skills are and to get an inkling on skills you might need to develop, carry on reading.

Train to Be a Personal Trainer - Your Salary and Career Prospects

Year on year many people decide to act on their vision of their perfect body, get some help and shed those few pounds. Nowadays, with the knowledge of nutrition and the impact diet can have on progress, even more people are working with personal trainers. This essentially means that a qualified personal trainer can now work as much (or as little!) as they want.

Personal Trainers can often be seen as an inspiring figure and someone to look up to for clients. This can also lead to a high level of job satisfaction through helping people achieve goals and often being the catalyst for a positive impact on clients’ lives.

No Experience? Here’s How To Get A Job You’ll Love

So, you've decided it's time to look for a brand-new job, as you explore through your options, you start getting this daunting realisation you haven't gained the skills required to be accepted for any of these roles.

It's time to stop panicking; the fundamental thing you need to understand is that all the skills described on a job description aren't required. Most employees are welcoming to getting to know somebody on their personality and strengths combined. So, even if you potentially possess fewer skills then someone else, you may hold the characteristics to fit the business considerably more.
