Talent Plan For England Launched
We want to have the best talent system in the world
We're already a hugely successful sporting nation. Our country enjoyed record performances at the Commonwealth Games in Australia, while English athletes made up more than 80% of the hugely successful Team GB and ParalympicsGB in the most recent summer Olympic and Paralympic Games.
This success has been made possible by excellent performance programmes underpinned by effective talent systems – but we know we can’t take this success for granted.
That’s why we’ve produced our Talent Plan for England, which outlines our seven principles for investing in talent and explains how we can help produce the athletes that will star on the international stage in the future.
