As an organisation, Sport Structures are committed to working with industry partners to support the development of individuals, groups and organisations within the community.  As a part of this commitment, we are proud to announce that we are working with CIMSPA as a training provider partner on the next phase of their ReTrain to ReTain funding project, helping to tackle skill shortages and empower individuals and organisations to remain, return or enter the sports sector.

Whether you are a sports coach, fitness professional, volunteer or organisation in the sport and physical activity sector, ReTrain to ReTain is devised to support all individuals across England working or volunteering in the sport and physical activity sector. On offer are a wealth of tools and resources to aid and develop your skills, funding, and support, helping you get back on track after the Covid-19 pandemic.

We caught up with Amy Bryant our Coach Education and Compliance Project Manager on our announcement who said: “We are pleased to be working with CIMSPA again on the next phase of ReTrain funding, helping to support learners to access the training they need to remain active in the sports sector.”

As an approved CIMSPA training provider partner we aim to boost the sport and physical activity community through our offer of courses as part of the ReTrain-to-ReTrain programme, these include:

  • Level 3 PESS (Individuals and cohorts – face-to-face)
  • Level 3 Swim Coordinator
  • Level 2 Multi-skills (Face to face or blended, minimum cohort required)
  • Level 1 Coaching
  • Level 2 Coaching
  • Level 3 Coaching
  • Level 3 Leadership and Management
  • Level 5 Leadership and Management

We are also looking to add more courses to the above list, so please check back to see if ReTrain to ReTain funding could support your training ambitions.

Simon Kirkland, Executive Director of Sport Structures noted “This is a great opportunity for developing staff through short term programmes and training and we would be delighted to support people with this process!”.
