Online training and support for Covid-19 reopening


The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity are appointing a supplier of digital learning to develop, host and certificate online learning to support sport, fitness and physical activity service reopening during Covid-19.

Sport England have commissioned CIMSPA to administer a fund allocated to quickly respond to the clear training need to enable the workforce and employers to fully equip in readiness for the sector reopening.

Sport England are looking for providers advanced in the area of online delivery and well-versed or connected in the context of post Covid-19 recovery. The supplier will be well versed in the ukactive framework for reopening and the corresponding CIMSPA guidance.

The project will appoint a CIMSPA education partner to create a flexible online learning offer that will support the workforce in confirming the correct knowledge, skills and behaviours are in place across multiple roles to facilitate the service reopening phase.

Speaking about the project, Spencer Moore, Director of Strategy, said:

“We have a unique but narrow window of opportunity to train our workforce in responsibly reopening our operational base and, most importantly, ensuring consumer confidence that our sector is providing a healthy activity environment that minimises risk.

With Sport England support, CIMSPA will work with the selected partner to provide this training package, for free, to everyone working in sport and physical activity in England.”

The training will be available for one year and all participants will be digitally certificated.

The project contract has an anticipated value of up to £175,000 and has been funded by Sport England.
