Workforce development in the physical activity sector

0 0
ukactive’s National Summit 2015 saw workforce development take a starring role as a key priority for the sector, with the event featuring breakout sessions including ‘Apprenticeships and Trailblazers: What you need to know’ and ‘"Raising the Bar” of training and implementing CIMSPA’s reforms”, seeking to provide clarity to organisations and individuals who want to understand what government reforms mean for employers and the workforce, and supporting delegates in their strategic thinking in this area.

Delegates heard from an array of specialist speakers in the field, including Sue Husband, Director of Apprenticeships, Skills Funding Agency, Rich Millard, Chair of the Physical Activity Trailblazer Project Management Group and Tara Dillon, CEO, CIMSPA, among others. 

ukactive’s Blueprint for an Active Britain includes policy recommendations around a workforce development strategy for the physical activity sector, and the establishment of a Chartered Physical Activity Professional. The event also saw the launch of the ‘Raising the Bar’ report, exploring new evidence published by Future Fit Training outlining employer satisfaction levels with training and assessment standards in the sector.  

The overriding call from the day was crucially that employers and all stakeholders must work together in order to improve workforce standards throughout the sector, and ukactive urges all employers, of any size, to engage in the Trailblazer Apprenticeship programme, to ensure the development of a workforce fit for the future. The emphasis on skills and workforce development on this year’s National Summit agenda highlights our commitment to this area of work in the coming months and years, and its importance for our members and stakeholders across the sector.
