SkillsActive is the new Sector Skills Council for active leisure and learning whose role is to help connect organisations developing and offering qualifications to work in the sector with appropriate opportunities to attract funding for individual candidates. One of the early priorities for SkillsActive is to develop a co-ordinated strategy to access mainstream government funding opportunities that have the potential to support people development in sport and recreation, particularly in the area of coaching. At a local level, individuals are supported by county sports partnerships and local authorities to access funding, and scholarship opportunities are also available through Sport England's lottery programme.
