Sport England are working closely with The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) in producing a number of Professional Standards related to Coaching in the UK.
The new standards provide an agreed reference point of the knowledge, skills and behaviours required of paid coaching assistants and coaches, and will not only inform the development of future coaching qualifications and training but also support the effective deployment of coaches. WASP are working with Sport England & CIMSPA to implement these standards at a local level.
CIMSPA is the lead body for workforce development in the UK's sport and physical activity sector. They are backed by government, Sport England and over 250 employer and education partners. They are building great career pathways and a recognised and respected profession for everyone working in our sector.
