New endorsement for University of Chichester

Whilst the University of Chichester is already a CIMSPA Higher Education partner, the new endorsement will see the partnership strengthen.

The endorsement will align the BA(Hons) Sport Management curriculum with CIMSPA’s professional standards framework, ensuring students graduate with the qualifications and skills needed to work in the UK’s sport and physical activity sector.

Helen Hiley, Education Officer for Higher Education at CIMSPA, said: “A CIMSPA endorsed degree, coupled with the practical nature of these degree programmes, provides students and employers with the assurance that they have received an education that will enable them to be deployed within the sport and physical activity sector as a qualified and ready member of the workforce.”

As part of the partnership, students will become CIMSPA members and get access to free training and learning resources, as well as networking opportunities with the body’s many industry partners for volunteering, placements, and internships.

Professor Mike Lauder, Director of the Institute of Sport at the Chichester Institute of Sport is delighted that their sport management programmes have received professional endorsement from CIMSPA. He said: “As an Institute we actively seek professional endorsements across our range of programmes and this endorsement will be the first of many planned programme endorsements with CIMSPA. We are committed to providing our students with an outstanding academic experience that is aligned with professional recognition and inextricably linked to the standards required in the employment sector.

“This endorsement will allow our students to take advantage of the many benefits they stand to receive from their CIMSPA membership such as opportunities to engage in continuous professional development in sport, physical activity and beyond.”

Paul Wheeler, Programme Coordinator for BA(Hons) Sport Management said: “This partnership with CIMSPA builds on our desire to provide degrees that offer an exciting mix of real-world experiences but are underpinned by evidence-led academic rigour.

“The BA(Hons) Sport Management degree delivers students a choice of two pathways, from their second year onwards, to specialise in either business or physical activity focused modules to match their career aspirations. Both pathways will provide our students with the essential employability knowledge and skills to help prepare them for employment after graduation.”
