Coaching, volunteering and workforce

Developing a workforce that enables Londoners to lead active lives

A bigger, better workforce for sport in London

As London’s population grows more diverse and the ways that people choose to be active change, the workforce that delivers sport needs to be ready to reflect the needs and desires of its consumers.

We help to set strategic direction for the physical activity and sport sector on developing a bigger and better workforce to support efforts to get more Londoners into regular physical activity. We also provide training, development and learning opportunities for coaches and volunteers looking to improve their skills, and advice, support and guidance to the sector on how to effectively recruit, develop and mobilise their workforce.
