There have been numerous developments within vocational education over the last two years which have led to awarding organisations having greater ability to design qualifications with the support of employers to ensure that they provide a clear line of sight to work.
The active leisure sector is driving its workforce development through its Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA). The CIMSPA Professional Development Framework defines the competencies relating to key job roles within the sector; it then identifies relevant aspects of continuous professional development, qualifications and units suitable for each role. This Professional Development Framework will also set delivery and assessment standards, and the development of this framework is being supported by the Physical Activity Trailblazer Group. Active IQ is a member of the Trailblazer Awarding Organisation Advisory Group and is an awarding organisation partner of CIMSPA.
Active IQ also works closely with ukactive and directly with employers via its Employer Taskforce Group, which is a forum for gathering essential feedback from employers as industry experts and end users of qualifications.
Active IQ apprenticeship packages, qualifications, eLearning and professional development services are available to all employers, of all types and sizes, who are responsible for the delivery of continuing professional development within their organisations.
