This CIMSPA national event will explore many of the issues surrounding the current debate regarding sport, physical activity and leisure provision in Northern Ireland and the new realities the sector will have to confront if it is to meet the challenges of an ever-changing economic environment.
There’s something in the programme for ALL sport and physical activity professionals:
This will hear from speakers with experience of leading organisations at senior management level – outlining the arguments for a more business-like approach to service provision, whilst still ensuring community and wellbeing objectives remain at the heart of the sector’s organisational ethos. With content focused on the senior and strategic management issues facing the sector, this session is intended as most relevant to:
- Heads of sport/leisure services
- Sport and leisure centre managers
- Leisure services managers
This offers front-line and supervisory staff an opportunity to consider both some great examples of good practice at the operational level, and also how the sector is interacting with traditionally “hard to reach” groups via the hugely successful Sport Northern Ireland Active Communities programme. This session will be ideal for front-line staff and will give these staff a valuable personal professional development and networking experience. Aimed at:
- Sports development officers
- Duty officers
- Recreation assistants
With the Review of Public Administration (RPA) process a reality in Northern Ireland, there has never been a better time to explore these important themes – keeping sport, leisure and physical activity at the heart of the our communities.
