Futureactive encourage job hunters to get OK Accredited!
Futureactive are delighted to support The Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code initiative, "the first free accredited sun protection initiative designed specifically for outdoor activity leaders".
We are keen to actively promote their free resources, advice and “OK accreditation” scheme to all our children’s Sports and Activity Leaders, PE Teachers, PE Supply staff and to all our job hunters, as well as to all the schools and children’s sports activity providers that we work with throughout the UK, and worldwide.
The Myfawy Townsend Melanoma Research Fund launched their 'Blow the Whistle on Sunburn!' initiative in 2014 and provides a wealth of resources and an accreditation scheme for Activity Leaders, Sports Coaches, PE Teachers and people working outside with young people which aims to encourage best practice and the promotion of sun safety for both adults and the children in their care.
Futureactive's Director Jon Pettit, himself an ex-Head of PE and School Sports Partnerships Development Manager and father of 3 said
Futureactive (and previously PE Recruitment) has always been committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and actively promotes best practice to all the PE teachers, Sports Coaches and Children's Activity Leaders that we work with. The Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code provides some excellent resources and advice for working outdoors with children and how to promote and encourage Sun Safety. The initiative also encourages people to lead by example and so stay sun safe themselves.
We hope that by gaining the OK accreditation, prospective employers will be able to easily identify prospective candidates who have signed up to The Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code and who have pledged to do the best they can to protect the children in their care. We will be actively promoting this scheme to all our job hunters and all our PE and School Sport Supply Staff.
