Supporting coaches, instructors and other activity deliverers

Supporting coaches, instructors and other activity deliverers

Our aspiration is to ensure that people who are engaged in sport and physical activity have the best possible experience. To achieve this, the workforce must be recruited, developed and supported in the right way. To find out more about how we plan to achieve this, read our workforce strategy.

In the context of sport and physical activity, the workforce is made up of volunteers, coaches and the professional workforce – paid professionals who are employed or self-employed either full-time or part-time.
