The first stage of this project was focused on understanding audiences: to understand physical activity levels and attitudes of residents and participants. This helped to gain an understanding of resident needs and the workforce needed to support them to be active. Click here for more information on phase 1 of the project.
Phase 2 was focused on building the sport and physical activity workforce by offering training and qualifications to develop skilled and inspiring people from all backgrounds, to provide great experiences of sport and physical activity for everyone.
We want to develop a workforce with the knowledge, skills, competencies and behaviours to engage a wide range of audiences in sport and physical activity. Implementing a ‘person like me’ approach to workforce development aims to create a workforce that is reflective of the communities they operate in.
In June 2021 Active Sussex delivered a Workforce Investment Fund Learning Event to share the key learnings and impact from the project. See the presentation slides here.
