It has been an amazing year for us in many ways, including working with CIMSPA and ukactive for the Raising the Bar report 2016 and gaining much positive feedback from the industry at the ukactive Summit this month. Being chosen as finalists in the 'Training Provider of the Year' category was very exciting, but not as exciting as it was to hear our name read out as winners the night before last!
In the words of our founder and Director Rob Johnson -
"We are absolutely delighted to receive this Award which shows that our work to raise standards and promote professionalism within the industry is both recognised and valued.
We are working tirelessly to improve standards of training, engage and excite our students and deliver skilled, professional trainers to the leisure industry. The recent publication of our Raising the Bar 2016 report in partnership with ukactive and CIMSPA revealed a desire among operators for training providers to lengthen and broaden their training to ensure a professional and effective workforce.
We are absolutely committed to delivering the best possible training to ensure standards are raised and upheld in the leisure industry. This Award shows our commitment is valued by the industry and we feel both privileged and proud to have won this accolade.”
“The Active Training Awards offer a great opportunity to take stock of our progress and recognise the success of those companies and individuals who are leading the way,” said Steven Ward, ukactive Executive Director. “I’d like to say a huge well done to all of the winners and finalists, who together have demonstrated a real commitment to building a better workforce and driving our sector forward.”
Tara Dillon, Chief Executive Officer, CIMSPA added: “I am very pleased to see award winners duly recognised for their efforts in terms of professionalising our workforce, building a winning culture and continuing to improve our training and skills base.”
We have an exciting year ahead with many new projects including the Pro Zone which is the only online accredited training programme offering continuous education for fitness professionals.
