New course to help sector reopen
A £250,000 investment is being made to help the sport and physical activity sector reopen in as strong a position as possible.
A major training initiative have been created by us and CIMSPA to help the sport and physical activity sector reopen.
CIMSPA (the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity) have been supported by a £250,000 investment of National Lottery money from us in workforce and volunteer training.
The ReActivate course will enable workers and volunteers to return with confidence.
After the shut down due to restrictions imposed as a result of coronavirus (Covid-19), the reopening of indoor gyms and leisure facilities is anticipated in the coming weeks – and CIMSPA chief executive officer Tara Dillon wants the workforce to be as prepared as possible.
“The sport and physical activity workforce and volunteers are going to play a vital role in keeping the nation fit and healthy as we emerge from this crisis,” she said.
“With our recent Return to Work survey indicating that 40% have some degree of apprehension about returning, it is vital that we give them the support they need to return with confidence and create a safe environment for the public.
“The resources we are providing with support from Sport England and our delivery partners are designed to give all stakeholders the ability to reopen with confidence.”
