GM Active – Skills Training Academy

Equipping 3,600 employees with the skills to address inactivity across Greater Manchester.

On The Move

GM Moving and GreaterSport had targets of enabling two million people in the region to lead more active lives by 2021 and for 75% of residents to be on the move by 2025, making Greater Manchester the UK’s most active region. They needed a new approach to their training to equip their employees with the skills to meet the needs of their customers.
