Sport England’s investment in CIMSPA earlier this year means we’re now in a position to effect positive change to career pathways in our sector. But, accurate labour market intelligence will be vital in ensuring our work is focused and timed correctly.
Our 2017 labour market intelligence report found that just 28% of managers in our sector are required to hold a management qualification. It also discovered that those leaving the sector often cite "poor management” as a reason for their exit.
We’re keen to find out more about issues such as these, so CIMSPA can best advise employers, training providers and education specialists as to how they can help ensure the sector has the right people with the right qualifications in the right jobs.
To this end, CIMSPA has just launched this year’s CIMSPA labour market surveys and we need your organisation’s help with this important sector insight project.
- We need responses from those working in sport, leisure, fitness and physical activity. If your learners match this profile, please encourage them to take part – the survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and there’s a prize draw for a £100 Amazon gift card up for grabs.
- Note that your learners don’t need to be CIMSPA members to take part.
The survey can be accessed via our survey microsite: http://survey2017.cimspa.co.uk/
It will be open until the end of 2017 and we’ll make sure you get a copy of the subsequent CIMSPA labour ma rket intelligence report.
