Tajinder (or Taj) is currently studying with Train Together for the Supporting Learning and Teaching in Schools (STLS) level 3 and her assessors award, Training Assessment and Quality Assurance (TAQA). Specialising in PE and sport, she has been coaching and mentoring in the field for just over five years and felt that a move into assessing was a natural progression for her career.
“I love keeping fit and working in the sports sector. Coaching and mentoring enables me to help people progress in their chosen sport and completing these qualifications means I can take that to another level.”
Although she is already a very motivated individual, Taj has found the support from the team at Train Together invaluable.
“The support I’ve had from Sam, Rachel and Michelle has been really good. The hours have been very flexible which has meant I can still fit work and training around the course. They’re so friendly and approachable and constantly communicate with you, so you always know what’s going on. You know that they’re with you every step of the way.
“I was completely new to this and right from the start they’ve broken things down to help me understand, giving me a head start on what I need to look for.”
Although Taj works independently, she is hoping to also work with Train Together once she has successfully completed her courses. “The team have been so easy to work with and get things done in a relaxed way – they definitely make me want to work with them!”
