On your marks...

Our goal of professionalising the leisure sector will enable employers to capitalise on their future growth potential

With just days until the start of the Olympics, excitement is building. These Games will see a number of our SkillsActive AASE apprentices - including Rebecca Adlington, Tom Daley and Sarah Stevenson - flying the flag.

These games are also a motivator for 2016 and 2020 and we are proud that many inspired athletes are enrolled in our AASE programmes.

SkillsActive recently won its own gold medal at the 2012 Podium Awards in recognition of our Personal Best initiative. This pre-employment scheme aims to harness the motivating force of London 2012, and has seen more than 45 per cent of individuals achieving a Level 1 award in preparation for event volunteering, with 25 per cent of graduates finding employment.

As REPS goes from strength to strength, we are excited to share our expertise from the past decade to support the growth of registers. We need to ensure that we are the preferred career choice for motivated young people and able to offer a professional service, trusted and respected by customers and employers alike.

Our goal of professionalising the leisure sector will enable employers to capitalise on their future growth potential. The government shares this vision and has awarded SkillsActive further UKCES Growth and Innovation funding to rollout up to six new registers over a two-year period. This funding, plus public co-investment into the sector, will benefit the growth of many SMEs and micro businesses. Registers will be run by SkillsActive, but we will work in partnership with stakeholders and employers to ensure a productive approach.

As a former Olympic gold medallist, I fully understand the challenges that all our participants face in the coming weeks and the moment of achievement can't be under-estimated. SkillsActive is on track to meet its targets, ready to build upon and implement growth plan for the future, ensuring that we continue to deliver More People, Better Skilled, Better Qualified.
