We need YOUR views on ensuring the public value and trust our work 

We’re inviting sport and physical activity professionals to take part in an important consultation on ensuring our profession is trusted and valued by our customers and communities.

WORKFORCE CONSULTATION

What we’re listening for…

The project provides an opportunity for the sport and physical activity sector to contribute their views and consider whether a common approach can ensure the sector presents the end user and other stakeholders with an appropriately qualified and safe workforce in a transparent way.

The consultation will also address the needs of the public health sector, parents and other groups in ensuring that the sport and physical activity sector’s work is delivered with trust and competence.

It will also determine if a consensus exists for a sector-wide solution to these challenges, and a practical route to that solution, to ensure that the public and others always experience high quality interactions with the sporting workforce.

One of the potential end goals and outcomes for discussion, is to work with the sector and agree on a consensus that ensures participants and potential new entrants are given the best possible support and guidance, ensuring that the right people with the right skills are in the right place to deliver safe and inclusive sport and physical activity opportunities.

The consultation project is being led by the newly-formed Sporting People organisation, who specialise in helping organisations develop the people who make sport and physical activity happen. Lead consultants Dan Thorp, Steve Mitchell and Rob Young have, between them, over 60 years’ experience across the sport and physical activity sector – from advising national governing bodies through 3rd sector sport to learning and development work.

Sporting People are keen to listen to the views of the widest possible range of sport and physical activity sector organisations and professionals. To register your interest in being a part of this consultation please contact the project team using the link below:
