Workforce Strategy (2019-2024)

The draft Suffolk Workforce Strategy (2019-2024) was launched in January 2019. It is currently still in draft format whilst it is being endorsed by MAC (Most Active County) and wider partners across Suffolk.

The development of the Strategy has been a collaborative partnership, consisting of a process of ongoing consultation with stakeholders and partners, ensuring the collective input and ownership of the strategy by all and a workforce jointly created to enable everyone in Suffolk to lead active lives.

'Developing a Workforce Fit for the Future' is focused on two main strategic priorities and is underpinned by a number of key thematic aims and objectives designed to provide greater clarity to all organisations that play a role in promoting physical activity in Suffolk. These strategic priorities are the goals for all elements of the strategic plan:

1. A broader workforce enabling people in Suffolk to lead active lives (broadening to the education sector, health sector and workplaces)

2. A workforce that better meets the physical activity needs of everyone in Suffolk

The strategy will deliver a fundamental shift in who makes up the physical activity and sport workforce, and how that workforce supports people living in Suffolk communities to live active lives.

Suffolk Sport will continue to be the strategic lead organisation for the physical activity and sport workforce in Suffolk, providing ongoing communication, leadership, coordination and resources. The strategy will act as the catalyst for workforce development across the county, providing a more joined up approach for the many organisations involved in the sector.

Workforce Vision

Considering the two strategic priorities, we have developed a vision for the future physical activity workforce in Suffolk.

"To develop a highly skilled, motivated and diverse workforce equipped to meet the physical activity needs of Suffolk communities"

This vision is underpinned by a number of key thematic aims and detailed objectives that can be found in the Workforce Strategy document below
