Working in an Active Nation

September 18, 2018

Sport England has developed a plan to give the more than 400,000 people who work in the sport and physical activity sector in England the best possible support.

Working in an Active Nation has two main objectives:

  • Support the workforce to become more customer focused - To ensure that people who do sport and physical activity have the best possible experience. To achieve this, those who work in the sector need to be recruited, developed and supported in the right way. Sport England is proposing a shift in emphasis, with workforce development placing a deep understanding of the people who do sport and activity at its heart.
  • Develop the workforce so that it’s recognised as professional - By developing things such as a clear set of professional standards, career development pathways and new qualification and training approaches, the strength of the sport and physical activity sector will be more widely recognised. It will also help people feel united and proud to be part of the sector, fostering increased collaboration and, ultimately, lead to more people getting active.
