The European fitness and physical activity sector has a new plan for its future development of training, qualifications and employment following the publication of the detailed BLUEPRINT report.  
During the past 5 years, EuropeActive has worked with partners to review, research and develop a complete plan for how fitness instructors will be skilled to work in the industry as we quickly move into the recovery and future expansion of the sector. 
Through two EU-funded actions, EuropeActive and its partners, experts, and European Commission officers have developed a pathway that will help the sector focus on developing new skills for current and future workers; on improving the employability of young people, and supporting entrepreneurship and growth across the sector. Called the ‘BLUEPRINT for skills cooperation and employment’, the detailed work has just been published as a compendium which can be downloaded for free here. Accompanying the report are three videos explaining the work, context and background to provide the fitness and physical activity sector with the tools it needs to further grow in the future. 
BLUEPRINT provides the most comprehensive research and analysis of almost any economic sector in Europe, and is a world-beating solution setting out a clear pathway for the sector to develop and prosper. Falling under one of the key pillars of EuropeActive’s new strategy for improving standards in the sector, the pathway has 8 key stages for development and BLUEPRINT provides the explanation and detailed actions to see its full implementation.
