Launched in 2018, the Blueprint for Skills Cooperation and Employment in Active Leisure project was a three-year project and aimed at developing a sector skills strategy for the Active Leisure sector, which combines the fitness and outdoor sectors.
The consortium aimed at creating the evidence base to identify skills gaps followed by a carefully designed plan and implementation of activities. It also contributed to build the permanent structures the sector will require to ensure transparency and objectivity for future skills and human resources development with the sector skills alliance for active leisure, and a European awarding organisation. Ultimately, this helps allow to deliver improved, increasingly relevant qualifications that are recognized on a European-wide basis.
