Logan City resident in the running for prestigious Qld award

Logan City Resident Ashleigh Tomlinson recently won the South East region Bob Marshman Trainee of the Year category in the 2021 Queensland Training Awards and will vie for the state award on the 8th of next month.

The fitness leader at the three gyms operated by inSports Logan Health and Fitness is passionate about the industry, and has helped design a grassroots sports program for children between the ages of 4 and 8. 

Ashleigh completed her Certificate III in Sport and Recreation six months ahead of schedule, so she challenged herself to also complete a Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance during her two-year trainee-ship and says,

“It was a great environment to work in as a trainee.”

“I was able to discover what I’m really interested in, and I was supported all the way.”

With her traineeship now complete, Ashleigh’s ongoing role at inSports gyms helps Logan residents reach their health and fitness goals.

Governance Chair, Councillor Natalie Willcocks, says Council’s traineeship program offers opportunities for young people to begin their careers in a range of fields.

“We have trainees right across the organisation, from business administration to marketing and events and sport and recreation.”

“Our trainees and apprentices gain nationally-recognised qualifications while also getting experience in a workplace, which sets them up for some great opportunities down the track.”

“I commend Ashleigh’s determination to finish two certificate courses during her traineeship, and I am thrilled to see her continue working here at Council to promote an active and healthy community.”
