Herts Sports Partnership through its support of Sport for Social Change and Physical Activity for Wellbeing projects has identified there has never been a greater need for a fit for purpose workforce to support our work. Our extensive engagement with our key partners and sports coaches, instructors, volunteers and educators and has given us valuable insight into the skills gaps and the training requirements across the sector. We really want to create a workforce that reflects the people that live in our county.  

The Partnership recognises the value in providing opportunities for people to work in the areas which they know best. We want to support young people to engage in education and employment opportunities so that they can use sport as a positive vehicle to a more prosperous future, while enriching the sport sector with a diverse and skilled workforce. 

We are currently exploring, planning and developing our education and employment programme within some of Hertfordshire’s most deprived communities. More information will be available in due course.

Degree Apprenticeships 

The University of Hertfordshire are working with the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA as a Higher Education partner to develop Sports Degree Apprenticeships. Herts Sports Partnership will be working closely with our academic colleagues to support this, and develop a pathway for our education and employment participants.
