Funding to create 2,000 jobs in sport
POSTED 09 Oct 2009 . BY Helen Patenall
The government has announced that it will create more than 2,000 jobs in the sports and active leisure sectors.

Extra funding will be channeled into the government’s £1bn Future Jobs Fund, which will be delivered by the National Skills Academy (NSA). NSA will deliver the initiative in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust, a number of national governing bodies (NGB), the Prince’s Trust and the Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust.

Together the organisations will aim to create and support new jobs in sport, giving young people the opportunity to develop careers in coaching, leadership and sports development.

Sport England is currently working with county sports partnerships and several other NGBs to examine the potential to create further opportunities through the fund.

Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Ben Bradshaw, said: "This is a big boost for community sport."

"These jobs will create a new generation of talented sports coaches, administrators and community health workers - exactly the people who will help us deliver a lasting legacy from the London Olympics."

The Future Jobs Fund will provide funding for 150,000 posts - at least 100,000 for young people and 50,000 in unemployment hotspots. Young people can apply for jobs through the fund after being unemployed for 10 months.

The initiative was announced as Sport England agreed to invest a further £1.38m in SkillsActive over the next two years.

SkillsActive has been tasked with supporting 46 NGBs in their efforts to put in place workforce development plans as part of Sport England plans to ensure all NGB employees have the expertise to deliver for grassroots sport.
