1st4sport Endorsement Service

Have your education solutions endorsed by 1st4sport

Do you offer learning solutions including workshops, conferences, seminars, or other educational products that support people to fulfil their roles effectively in the sport, physical activity and health and leisure sectors?*

If so, why not consider getting endorsed by 1st4sport?

Why should I get endorsed?

A 1st4sport Endorsement gives recognition that what you’re providing is industry relevant and of the appropriate standard. Our detailed assessment criteria ensure that only the most relevant and high-quality learning solutions, developed by industry experts, receive endorsement.

You’ll benefit from:

  • certification of learners by 1st4sport Endorsement
  • use of the 1st4sport Endorsement logo on your solution-specific marketing material
  • being able to describe your learning solution as being endorsed by 1st4sport, supported by a clear statement describing what the endorsement provides
  • the added credibility of being endorsed by the sector’s specialists, giving you an extra edge when promoting your learning solutions.

How much does 1st4sport endorsement cost?

Cost is dependent on several factors, including the level of endorsement you are seeking and the duration of your learning solution. 1st4sport Endorsement is a bespoke service and therefore a formal quotation would be provided prior to the commencement of work.

How long does endorsement last?

1st4sport Endorsement is valid for a period of 3 years, provided that no material changes are made to the product during the endorsement period. You can apply for re-endorsement of a learning solution as your endorsement period approaches its end.

The cost of re-endorsement is dependent on:

  • the number of changes made to your learning solution since its initial endorsement was granted
  • the level of re-endorsement you are seeking
  • the duration of your learning solution.
