Leisure apprenticeships: supporting the industry’s ambitions to grow
With over 10 million members across over 7.2 thousand centres in the UK, the active leisure and fitness industry is an essential part of our economy and importantly, the health of the nation.
With over 190,000 employed in the sector, there is a wealth of opportunity for people to build meaningful, long-lasting and successful careers. And this is only looking to grow as the government, alongside ukactive, are invested in helping gyms, pools and leisure facilities to reach more than five million new members by 2030.
This ambition for sustainable growth can be supported through apprenticeships. Centres can use active leisure apprenticeships to invest in multi-skilled training for team members, recruit and retain talent, and support improvements in social mobility.
