Leeds and London based digital education provider Strength and Conditioning Education (SCE) have reported “a dramatic growth period over the last 18 months resulting in revenue approaching £2m and over £650k of EBITDA.”
SCE, founded by Brendan Chaplin in 2011, were well prepped for the online revolution having moved all of their sales and operations to a remote format in 2019, but had to act quickly to develop products suited to a fully online audience.
Chaplin says, “With the gyms closing for significant periods last year, our challenge was to replicate our coveted practical coaching clinics in the virtual environment. Through a combination of newly developed technology, as well as a passionate and dedicated team of coaches we were able to deliver a world class experience for our learners. This delivery format shows no signs of slowing down with the majority of our students are still opting for the virtual experience even though we are now back to in person courses again, which tells us we’re doing something right!”
SCE have achieved a market leading position due to their “Three Pillar” learning methodology and focus on developing people who can thrive in today’s world.
Former SCE student and now SCE Head of Programmes Steven Gordon had this to say: “Of course we teach the technical elements to a very high level, but that simply is not enough. There are thousands of personal trainers and coaches who are great at what they do but don’t have any clients and aren’t earning any money. Our approach has always been to combine technical skills with both personal and business development. We work hard on where you want to take your career and who you are as a person. When you’re confident in your own skin and are prepared to tell the world, the opportunities come to you! When you then learn how to effectively market and sell yourself you really do have the full tool kit to build a long and fruitful career in the industry.”
The SCE course pathway takes people from aspiring coaches to full time coaches who typically work for sports teams, gyms and ultimately run their own businesses. With over 2000 learners annually, a flagship Level 4 Strength and Conditioning Course, business coaching, mentoring, and even personal training and youth coaching courses SCE are a dynamic and personable company with a strong focussed leadership team.
“Our vision is to impact 10,000 students annually, who all have the skills and mindset to positively impact their communities. We are well on our way to making it happen!”, says Chaplin.
