CIMSPA is asking frontline sport and physical activity professionals to take part in a survey as part of its workforce registration and regulation consultation – funded by Sport England and delivered by independent consultants Sporting People.
The survey canvases workforce views on ensuring that the public continue to value and trust the sector’s work.
The survey covers:
The challenges facing sector professionals.
What measures might be appropriate to check individuals are qualified and competent to work with the public.
Opinions as to the idea of a national register for those in the sector who are trusted sport and physical activity professionals.
This is an important opportunity chance to influence how working in sport and physical activity continues to grow as a recognised and respected profession - valued and trusted by the customers and communities that the sector works with.
The survey is completely anonymous, takes about 5 minutes to complete and will be open until 26 April 2019.
The project so far...
Last year, CIMSPA and Sport England commissioned independent consultants Sporting People to undertake an independent research and consultation project on the appropriate level of registration and regulation in England to support qualified and competent professionals in the sport and activity workforce.
Sporting People have already successfully hosted one-to-one meetings and workshops around the country to collect feedback from industry professionals in all areas of the sector. These have provided many invaluable contributions, with the new survey an important “next step” in the consultation.
