Developed by SkillsActive in consultation with leading employers, the programme is designed to attract learners keen for a career in the sport and active leisure industry.
The first group of students begun the programme in September 2011 and will spend their first year studying a combination of core and optional qualifications at Level 2.
The programme supports the strategic approach set out in the Welsh Government ‘Skills That Work for Wales’ strategy. It is being delivered by further education institutions such as Coleg Sir Gar, Ystrad Mynach College, Coleg Llandrillo and Cardiff and Vale College.
Mae gan SkillsActive bwyllgor gwaith yng Nghymru, sy’n cael ei arwain gan gyflogwyr, gyda chynrychiolaeth o asiantaethau cenedlaethol, cyrff sy’n bartneriaid a darparwyr hyfforddiant. Rydym hefyd yn gweithio mewn partneriaeth â grwpiau sector ym maes gwaith chwarae, ffitrwydd a’r awyr agored ac rydym wrthi’n datblygu rhwydweithiau cyflogwyr rhanbarthol ledled y wlad.
Rydym yn cynrychioli buddiannau’r sector yng Nghymru gerbron Llywodraeth Cymru a’i hadrannau allweddol megis yr Adran Addysg, Dysgu Gydol Oes a Sgiliau (AAS).
Rydym hefyd yn gweithio mewn partneriaeth â sefydliadau eraill yng Nghymru sy’n gysylltiedig ag addysg a hyfforddiant megis Cyngor Cyllido Addysg Uwch Cymru (CCAUC), Gyrfa Cymru, Canolfan Byd Gwaith a TUC Cymru.
