Developing the Workforce

Our goal is to improve people’s lives through sport and physical activity.

Active Sussex aims to improve people’s lives through sport and physical activity, with a specific focus on the inactive to active participant journey.

To support this journey, it is essential to provide a positive experience for the participant. Central to this experience is having the right person, with the right skills, in the right environment.

The sport and physical activity workforce is anyone who supports sport and physical activity including:
• Clubs/groups/activity deliverers
• Coaches
• Volunteers
• The professional sport and physical activity workforce

Active Sussex aims to develop and support a diverse and skilled workforce that have the knowledge, skills, competencies and behaviours, to provide positive experiences of sport and physical activity that engage, empower and enthuse everyone.

We want to create and support a workforce that can meet the different needs of different people within the communities they work in.
