CIMSPA endorses degrees from Anglia Ruskin University

Students at Anglia Ruskin University

CIMSPA has diligently worked with Anglia Ruskin University over the last few months to ensure their degrees are mapped against the sector’s professional standards. As a higher education partner, the university is working with the sector’s chartered professional body to further enhance the employability of its sport students.

Anglia Ruskin University joined CIMSPA as a higher education partner in June 2020. We have now endorsed 34 degrees across 11 institutions, with 21 higher education institutions in partnership. Collectively, they’ve mapped to 16 of the sector’s professional standards across roles, environments and populations.

The following degree programmes have been endorsed against a number of professional standards:

Helen Hiley, Education Officer for Higher Education at CIMSPA, said:

“Anglia Ruskin University entered partnership with CIMSPA to enhance the reputation of their sport science department and the employability of their sport and physical activity sector-related graduates.

Students who complete these courses will meet the relevant professional standards for employment, and will also be eligible for the relevant CIMSPA membership, regardless of what pathway they choose.

We’re also continuing to endorse degree programmes and we encourage all higher education institutions to contact us about our unique higher education partnership offer”.

Dr Daragh McDermott, Head of School of Psychology and Sport Science at Anglia Ruskin University, commented:

“The recent CIMSPA Endorsement of our ARU sports degrees is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our teaching staff. They have worked tirelessly to develop and deliver courses that meet the needs of both the students, and local and national employers in the sector.

“CIMSPA’s recognition that our courses not only meet their professional standards but do so with practical, real-life assessments of occupational competence, can give our current and future students confidence that they will be in the best position for their future careers upon graduation”.
