BUILDING A WORKFORCE THAT WORKS FOR ALL

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.

Working in an Active Nation’s vision is that everyone working in sport and activity feels confident, valued and supported.

This strengthening of the workforce would make it more able to give 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.

There are two main objectives in our newly published plan:

  • 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 they’ll achieve this

They’ve developed 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.
