Well done to REPs on 10 years of success!

17 Apr 2012
by Suki Kalirai, Interim CEO, SkillsActive
10 years of growth to reach 28,000 active members covering 65 per cent of instructors and trainers working in the industry

We all spend time reflecting on new ideas, things we can alter, or things we can improve on. As management, it is equally important to reflect and recognise success. We all know we have challenges but recognising success, and talking about it, can fuel further success.

I was particularly touched by comments from Technogym vice president Tony Majakas at SkillsActive's gathering for the 10th Anniversary of REPs, who said the world (of fitness) recognises the largest register internationally and tries to emulate its success but no one comes close; we should be proud of a great British success!

So we should be! Well done REPs for achieving this – 10 years of growth to reach 28,000 active members covering 65 per cent of instructors and trainers working in the industry. All without a statute, all achieved with great support. That is a global bench- mark – one that SkillsActive can and will improve on with the continued support and help of the employers, employees, trade bodies and increasing public recognition of the service the register provides.

Indeed, minister for sport and the Olympics Hugh Robertson, praised REPs in a special message. He said: "The work of REPs plays an important part in helping people make the transition into a more active lifestyle, which can often be an important first-step into more people taking up and enjoying sport – something that is very much a priority of mine".

SkillsActive is building on REPs' success, starting earlier with training provider engagement, creating awareness and working with employers and trade associations, but also involved in supporting ways for the applicability of similar concepts to other sub-sectors within our footprint, such as outdoor pursuits; sport; playwork; and the spa, hair and beauty arenas.

To everyone involved for the last 10 years: thank you and congratulations on creating a world leader. Here's to building on that success in the next 10 years!
