Active Training Awards nominations revealed as event expands to include a conference

GLL, Everyone Active and Fusion Lifestyle are among the nominations for this year’s Active Training Awards – which has been expanded to include a day’s conference.

The awards show and conference will be delivered by ukactive and CIMSPA on 30 November 2016. More than 200 delegates are expected to attend.

Several organisations will be in contention for awards such as Training Provider of the Year, Employer of the Year and Best Use of Technology.

The conference – titled the Active Training Workshop – will precede the awards and include discussions on best practice and issues facing the industry.

Among the speakers will be Virgin Active’s people director Hilary Tysoe, head of sport at the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Nick Pontefract and Sport England director of sport Phil Smith.

The latter two will discuss the government’s new strategy for sport Sporting Future and Sport England’s delivery document Towards an Active Nation.

Tysoe will give a talk about the role major employers must play in the development of the entire sector’s workforce.

Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, chair of ukactive, said the “increasing size and scale of the awards demonstrates the strides the physical activity sector has taken in the past few years”.

“It underlines the appetite and scope of our workforce to play a leading role in shaping the preventative health agenda,” she added.

CIMSPA chief executive Tara Dillon added: “Vocational training and skills development are constantly being refined and the rigorous application and assessment process for the awards offer an ideal opportunity for self-reflection and external feedback from a top quality judging panel.”

The conference and award ceremony will take place in Reading’s Hilton hotel. The event is being sponsored by Active IQ.
