Sport England plan to build a workforce that works for all

Categories: Active Sussex News Health & Wellbeing National Governing Bodies Sport Industry News

Sport England have 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.

The plan - Working in an Active Nation, envisions that everyone working in sport and activity feels confident, valued and supported. This strengthening of the workforce would enable the best possible experience for the people who are – or who want to be – active.

A shift in emphasis will place a deep understanding of the people who do sport and activity at the heart of workforce development, helping a wider range of people to engage with getting active.

Main objectives:

  • Support the workforce to become more customer focused
  • Develop the workforce so that it’s recognised as professional.

To help achieve these aims, those who work in the sector need to be recruited, developed and supported in the right way.

How Sport England will achieve this:

  • Develop a series of strategic approaches and key actions that will help achieve these objectives. This includes increasing the diversity and inclusion of the workforce and using insight to give a deeper understanding of the impact the workforce has on the people it’s trying to engage.
