CIMSPA welcome Transcend Awards into partnership


CIMSPA’s on-going goal is to develop a workforce that is professional, and a sector whose qualifications consistently apply and deliver the sector minimum deployment standards, as laid out by the sector itself. Transcend are developing products in support of this sector transformation; with a portfolio exclusively designed to empower unique individuals and professionalise the industry workforce.

Every product is developed in partnership with industry experts, at no cost to the partner for collaboration, following the belief that quality - not budget - is the deciding factor when it comes to partnerships. This allows those who complete a qualification to be the best they can be, on their continued journey through their chosen career pathway.

Natasha Eason, CIMSPA Education and Apprenticeships Officer, is excited to have Transcend Awards on-board, commenting: “We are pleased to be partnering with Transcend Awards as an awarding organisation partner.

“As a new awarding organisation, they have entered the sector with an innovative point of view towards qualifications and we applaud their mission to deliver high-quality, bespoke learning and development pathways that empower their learners.”

Stacey Doherty, Executive Awarding Director at Transcend Awards said:

“Transcend feel privileged to be accepted within CIMSPA’s portfolio of partners. CIMSPA’s vision for the transformation of our sector is revolutionary. Transcend’s philosophy is to enable our stakeholders to go beyond their limits.

“We believe that the CIMSPA standards and principles will enable us to collectively drive the participation, performance and professionalisation of our sector whilst ensuring that safeguarding is at the heart of every solution.”

With two qualifications already endorsed against the CIMSPA Professional Standards, including the Transcend Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training and the Transcend Level 2 Certificate in Gym Instructing, Transcend Awards have already demonstrated a commitment to the CIMSPA vision for a sector that is professional and that everyone wants to be a part of. We are looking forward to working with Transcend in the future and seeing what they do next.

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
