CIMSPA welcomes Sporting Future strategy second annual report

The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) has welcomed the recent publication of the second annual report for the government’s “Sporting Future” strategy.

CIMSPA is recognised by government and Sport England as the lead body for workforce development in the sport and physical activity sector and the chartered institute’s work to support the delivery of the Sporting Future strategy has been recognised in the annual report. The report includes several sections covering how CIMSPA is contributing to the strategy’s goals.

The report details how the new CIMSPA Professional Standards Matrix has advanced work to create clear standards and career pathways, how CIMSPA is facilitating the development of employer-led apprenticeship standards and how its new higher education partnership pilot will ensure that sector-relevant degree programmes both align with professional standards and enhance graduate employability.

Speaking about the report, Tara Dillon, CIMSPA CEO commented:

“It’s rewarding to see CIMSPA’s progress feature so significantly in this annual report and I’d like to thank all of the sport and physical activity sector employers, awarding organisations, training providers and FE & HE institutions for their contribution. Our collective effort is helping to create a genuine profession for those working in our sector – progress that this report confirms and congratulates.

“As Tracey Crouch makes clear in the report’s foreword, momentum is the watchword now. With Sport England’s backing we’re ramping up the pace of our professional and apprenticeship standards development work and, with the help of our new HE partners, creating a degree endorsement scheme that will embed these standards into degree programmes.”

“It’s an exciting time for our sector and CIMSPA will continue to work to ensure our workforce is ready to meet the challenge of reaching those who are currently inactive, and moving them onto a healthier path.”
