Move Consulting supported Our Parks to shake up the route to becoming a fitness coach with an industry leading Level 2 Coach Parker qualification. Work on the innovative blended learning and development offer began in October 2020.
The team utilised the latest professional standards for the sector to identify a hybrid of skills, knowledge and behaviours seen in fitness professionals, community coaches and physical activity practitioners that would meet the workforce development needs for the client.
Collaboration is a core part of the Move Consulting approach and the team wanted to make sure that the design of the learning, as well as the content itself, was evidence-based and grounded in practice, co-designed with the prospective market in mind.
The resulting qualification features four digital learning modules and a face-to-face element, making the learning accessible to more people and reducing many of the challenges experienced due to social restrictions. The innovation in qualification design aims to make the experience for learners more engaging and supportive.
The content and eLearning modules were designed to provide bite-sized steps. Each step comes with a digital knowledge check which aims to provide a handrail for learners. These checkpoints throughout the qualification help to evidence learners’ understanding of the foundations of each module, before building on them.
“We heard that Move Consulting had recently set up and were making some positive noises in the physical activity space. After a few conversations with the team at Move, it was obvious to us that they had not only the expertise to design and develop the kind of qualification we wanted, but their passion, values and vision as an organisation really helped in deciding on them as our chosen provider.”
