2013 getting off to a busy start

16 Apr 2013
by Ian Taylor, CEO, SkillsActive
REPs has now been running with enormous success for ten years and currently has circa 30,000 members.

It has been an exceptionally busy time for us recently at SkillsActive. We have welcomed the marvellous news from the government that primary school sport and activities are to benefit from £150m investment over the next two years, which I hope will help to inspire the next generation to take up sport.

This investment presents a fantastic opportunity for members of the Compass Association of Sports and Activity Providers (TCA) and sports national governing bodies to work together with primary schools to deliver sport and physical activity sessions. TCA members are experts in this field the association will set standards for competency, training and health and safety and promote accredited qualifications.

We are building on the success of the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) through the introduction of six new UKCES funded Registers, and I am very pleased to be able to tell you now about Capre, the Register of Children's Activity Professionals. SkillsActive is extremely proud of this innovative independent Register which houses information about individuals working in the children's physical activity industry.

Members of Capre deliver vitally important services for children and young people in the area of multi-disciplinary games and sports, and all types of physical activity.

As with any of our registers, prior to a full launch this Autumn we will be piloting the scheme which helps us to rigorously test the system, raise awareness, and give employers and the public the assurance that individuals have all been verified.

REPs has now been running with enormous success for ten years and currently has circa 30,000 members. The Register of Aquatic Professionals (RAPs) was launched this February, and our Playwork Register is currently in its pilot stage. The support of government and employers alike for the continued professionalisation of the sector workforce through a system for registered professionals is key. Through this system we can instill confidence that the person coaching or teaching them has the appropriate qualifications for the role.
