As part of our involvement with elevate we will be attending and supporting a number of panels within the five seminar streams. We have a wide range of themes from the future of workforce strategy to gender equality and inclusion.

Our own Tara Dillon, CIMSPA CEO, is chairing two panels: ‘Activating the Nation’ and ‘Future of Workforce Strategy and new ways of working’ in the Thought Leaders Conference. More information on the sessions is below.

Dillon commented, “We are very pleased to be returning to Elevate again as Lead Supporters for a fourth year. It is especially exciting as this is one of the first opportunities to speak to other members of the sector and hear their experiences and initiatives since the pandemic.

“We’re looking forward to seeing many visitors to our stand and hope they find our panels and seminars informative and helpful.”

Seminar highlights

Activating the nation
As we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, we are at an exciting juncture for physical activity in England. Exercise and physical activity was one of the few reasons to leave your home early in the pandemic, and as we recover from the past two years there may be a chance to establish sport and physical activity as a key enabler of our recovery.

Following the launch of Sport England’s Uniting the Movement strategy, and as the Government explore the physical activity agenda across different departments, this panel will discuss the opportunity for the sector to shape the next phase of this national journey, focusing on the least active and the societal benefits physical activity can bring.

Alongside Tara Dillon, the panelists include, Tim Hollingswoth, Chief Executive at Sport England, Elaine Briggs, Chief Education & Partnerships Officer at Future Fit Training, Huq Edwards, CEO at ukactive and John Sykes, GP at British Society for Medicine.

Future of workforce strategy and a new way of working
In this session, the panelists will explore local-lead skills and the demands of employers across the country, linking into the Adult Skills White Paper. They will discuss how many learners there are, how this will be funded and how it will change the landscape of sport and physical activity education. In addition, CIMSPA’s Head of Partnerships Clare Dunn will examine the current CIMSPA local skills pilots in Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire, the successes they have had and the current insights they can review.

Alongside Clare Dunn and Tara Dillon, the session’s speakers include: David Kreyling, CEO at CSL Group and Stuart Armstrong, Strategic Lead for Workforce Transformation at Sport England.

CIMSPA members will get 3 CIMSPA CPD points for attending, so make sure to come along to the CIMSPA stand (P66) to claim your points. If you don't get chance on the day, don't worry! There will be an opportunity to claim them after the event.
