OLCI Construction Training, the UK’s No.1 Construction Training Provider, has announced that it will be exhibiting at the Create Your Legacy event, an exhibition where elite sportspeople can explore new career and training opportunities outside of their sport.
Sportspeople who attend the exhibition can learn how OLCI courses lead to industry recognised qualifications in plumbing, gas, electrical and renewable energy trades. Once enrolled on an OLCI course, athletes can train at their local OLCI centre, so avoiding the need to travel far or spend nights away from home. Plus, OLCI’s flexible training means sportspeople can fit learning a lifetime skill around their sporting career. When they have successfully completed their course, they can build their own business, either full-time or part-time, or join a company in their chosen field.
OLCI already support members of the Professional Footballers’ Association and League Football Education. Players can take flexible taster courses run by OLCI, and gain a useful insight into what training for a new career in the trades would be like.
Commenting on attending the exhibition, Elin Norlin, OLCI Marketing Manager said: Create Your Legacy is a high-profile exhibition that should be attended by many elite-level athletes from a variety of sports. We are delighted to be exhibiting and look forward to helping people learn more about a career in the trades. Sportspeople who train with OLCI can gain useful skills that could become useful careers once they have finished competing in sport, or as a way to gain additional income.
The Create Your Legacy exhibition takes place at the Manchester Velodrome on 15th March 2012 and Madejski Stadium in Reading on 22nd March 2012. OLCI will be exhibiting at both venues.
