The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) is the single chartered professional body for the sport, fitness, leisure and physical activity sector. CIMSPA provides professional recognition of your status and qualifications and is developing career pathways for all in the sector – from student to CEO.
CIMSPA has been mandated by government and Sport England as the strategic lead on workforce development for the sector, to achieve the goals of the 2015 Sporting Future and 2016 Towards an Active Nation strategies. Back in January, Active Suffolk became the first lead employer partner in the Country and also the first Active Partnership to work with CIMSPA in this way. As the regional lead for the East, we will endorse CIMSPA membership – offering a 20% discount when professionals sign up through Active Suffolk.
Membership starts at just £24 per year (includes discount) and members can get access to 350+ FREE recognised CPD eLearning via the CIMSPA Academy.
CIMSPA only recognises CPD and qualifications that will help your career
CIMSPA is moving the sport, fitness and activity sector's CPD landscape past a "box checking" exercise and towards one that offers professionals a route to meeting their career ambitions. CIMSPA's awarding organisation, skills development and higher and further education partners are creating a unified skills and training ecosystem for the sector, and employer partners are already beginning to require that their staff only undertake CIMSPA-recognised CPD, qualifications and apprenticeships.
Active Suffolk are encouraging the entire workforce to take up this fantastic opportunity to be part of the professional body leading the way in our sector. For more information and how to join click here or refer to the label above.
