University of Wolverhampton backs CIMSPA as number of Higher Education partners grow


The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) welcomes the University of Wolverhampton as they successfully transfer from a CIMSPA Higher Education Associate Partner to a CIMSPA Higher Education Partner.

Colin Huffen, Head of Regulation and Standards at CIMSPA, said: “The University of Wolverhampton operates a high performing sports programme and we’re excited to have them onboard. Our partnership with them will foster collaboration and introduce CIMSPA as the chartered professional body across the different sport and physical activity courses they offer.”

As a Higher Education Partner, the University of Wolverhampton will work together with CIMSPA to further enhance the employability of their sports students. Higher education partners are certified as meeting employer-set professional standards, as facilitated by CIMSPA.

Julian Smith, Principal Lecturer and Head of Curriculum for Sport at the University of Wolverhampton, said: “Our partnership with CIMSPA is part of our exciting new sports curriculum which is launching in September 2020. The integration of employability and CIMSPA Professional Standards have been central to the development of the new curriculum to ensure our students are equipped with the competencies and skills needed to meet the requirements of potential employers.  We will now be aiming to achieve CIMSPA endorsement for all of our new courses as part of our continued commitment to the employability of our students.”
