Do you work in the sport and physical activity sector?

If you do, we're asking you to share your views on our Sport and Physical Activity Workforce Training Needs Analysis.

We want to ensure that people working within the sport and physical activity sector have a chance to voice their needs, their motivations and obstacles to progression, to help us shape how we develop and deliver our workforce development resources.

The skills and experience of the workforce - both paid and voluntary - play an important role in delivering physical activity in an appropriate and engaging way, particularly to people that don't do a lot of exercise.

To help us better understand the local landscape, we have designed a short 10-15 minute survey to capture the current qualifications, motivations, barriers, skills and confidence levels of the physical activity workforce across Norfolk. The questions focus primarily on these attributes in relation to working with target populations (e.g. children, older people, women, those living with long-term health conditions, and those with poor mental health).

Gathering this information will allow us to utilise our workforce development resources as effectively as possible. We will be in a position to respond to what the current workforce tells us by identifying training requirements, continual professional development opportunities and training formats that will best support their growth. This in turn, will help us ensure that we maximise the impact sport and physical activity has on those that need it most.

The survey will be live until Mon 14 October, and can be done on both desktop and mobile devices. Click here to start the survey.

Plus, by taking part, you can be entered into a prize draw to win some great prizes, including FitBits, restaurant and shopping vouchers!
