Study Active achieves the prestigious CIMSPA Education Partner “Enhancing” Status

22 Feb 2024
Study Active has achieved the prestigious “Enhancing” rating from CIMSPA / Study Active
Study Active, the current ukactive Education Provider of the Year and one of the UK’s leading Personal Trainer course providers, is celebrating after becoming one of the first training providers in the UK to achieve the prestigious “Enhancing” rating from CIMSPA - as part of the new CIMSPA Education Partner Quality Assurance Framework.

This rating of “Enhancing” is a genuine trust mark of quality and confirms Study Active’s position as one of the most forefront providers of fitness education in the UK. It also gives confidence to the public that they are choosing a properly endorsed provider with outstanding credentials.

Whilst Study Active has been a CIMSPA-endorsed Partner since 2016 (making them one of the longest-standing CIMSPA-affiliated education providers), the decision was taken by CIMSPA recently to conduct thorough quality assurance on all of their endorsed providers, with a rating awarded to reflect their outcome.

Following a quality assurance inspection, whilst non-compliant providers will be denied entry onto CIMSPA endorsement, compliant CIMSPA Education Partners will be given one of three ratings:

Enhancing – which is the ultimate CIMSPA Education Partner seal of quality which reflects good practice all round and provision of “high quality” education to learners (this is what Study Active have been awarded)

Enabling – this is for providers with some areas of good practice but who will receive support from CIMSPA to develop further.

Emerging – providers whose provision, whilst compliant, requires support, with the provider having to be set key improvement actions within a timeframe.

Such ratings will be published by CIMSPA (in a similar way that Ofsted publish ratings of schools) so there is transparency in the quality assurance process for the public. This will enable members of the public to identify the highest quality education & training available, which will likely influence their decision on choosing the best education provider for them. Anyone looking to choose high quality provision should now look out for the CIMSPA “Enhancing” badge on a company’s website (not just the CIMSPA logo!).

James Luscombe, MD of Study Active, reflected on his company’s latest quality kitemark: “It is with great pride that we announce that we are now a CIMSPA “Enhancing” rated Education Provider. Such status means the world to the Study Active team who work relentlessly day in, day out to provide an exceptional level of service to our learners. Whilst we have always been a CIMSPA Education Partner, it is great to see CIMSPA recognise the different levels that providers are operating at within their endorsed network. This certainly gives us motivation to ensure our Enhancing status is maintained – the bar is set high now!”

Tara Dillon, CEO of CIMSPA, reflected on Study Active’s success: “Study Active has demonstrated outstanding levels of education quality for many years now so we are delighted that they have received recognition of this through their “Enhancing” rating. We look forward to working with Study Active as one of our Education Partners as we strive to ensure that the sector’s workforce is fit for purpose”.
