Workforce Training Needs Analysis

Physical Activity Workforce Consultation

Active Norfolk recognise that the skills and experience of the sport and physical activity workforce - both paid and voluntary - is essential in delivering appropriate activity in an engaging way, particularly to inactive population groups.

To ensure that Norfolk has a physical activity workforce able and confident to provide varied and sustainable opportunities to a wide range of audiences, we want to be able to offer the right support, to the right people, in the right places. In order to meet the objectives set out in our strategy – increasing participation in sport and physical activity, and improving health and well-being by reducing physical inactivity - we need to continually think about how we engage, support, and develop a workforce that can help us do this.

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 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 from Monday 12th August - Mon 11th November, and can be done on both desktop and mobile devices.
