CIMSPA recruits for Pilates Instructor PDC


CIMSPA are pleased to announce that we are assembling a Professional Development Committee (PDC) for Pilates Instructor Professional Standard. We want to hear from experienced instructors, practitioners and organisations about what they think that Pilates Instructor Professional Standard should contain.

Our intention is to form a PDC that looks to examine two main areas:
  • The development of Professional Standards for the Pilates industry; including reviewing the currency of the National Occupational Standards for Mat based Pilates. (SKAEF 21 & 22)
  • To explore the opportunity to utilise the Royal Charter to create a profession that everyone wants to be part of, creating greater recognition and public confidence.

We are proposing forming the Professional Development Committee to meet in the summer of 2019. In line with CIMSPA’s governance structure the committee will be:
  • Open to any individual or organisation who wants to be involved in the development of the standards.
  • Employer led with representation from large, medium, small and micro employers and supported by technical experts including those with expertise in assessment from awarding organisations and higher education and in delivery from training providers.

All members of the committee will be asked to sign an agreement which requires them to work in line with the CIMSPA sub-committee code of conduct. Any individual or organisation found not to be working within the code will be excluded from development and decision making.

A typical PDC holds 1 or 2 face-to-face meeting per year, with the remainder of the work being completed via emails, surveys and online meeting.

The committee will be meeting 10:30am - 3:30pm on Weds 10 July at SportPark, Loughborough University.

If your organisation would like to apply to join the committee, please use the web form linked below to register your interest.

If you are interested in being part of this PDC then please complete the form by Friday 24 May.

PLEASE NOTE: there are a limited number of places available on this PDC and they will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis.

Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better

You can manage these small files and learn more about them from the article, Internet Browser cookies- what they are and how to manage them
