GreaterSport have a focus on engaging the professional workforce, this doesn’t necessarily mean sport development staff, it is much wider than this. We have engaged staff from over 150 different organisations from a range of sectors. Examples of these organisations are LGBT Foundation, GM Active, Sport England, Canal Trust, Universities, TfGM, NHS England and many more.
We are passionate about supporting our professional workforce because they have the ability to engage the inactive through work they are already doing. The learnings we are getting from highly skilled tutors and each other can help us, as the workforce, be the best we can be whilst trying to get Greater Manchester Moving.
There is a personal development aspect but also skill based for our sector. We are engaging the professional workforce and up skilling them to ensure physical activity and sport is on their agenda and they are aware of the benefits in each of the five government outcomes.
