A new on-line skills, qualifications and achievement record is being trialled by two employers. The new activepassport, from SkillsActive, will eventually be rolled out to all REPs members as part of their membership package. Activepassport is a unique on-line tool that delivers fast and easy access to verified records on identity, skills, qualifications, employment history and professional achievements. The activepassport pilot, supported by Virgin Active and DC Leisure, will take place over the next few months before activepassport is offered to all members.
REPs Register Jean-Ann Marnoch says activepassport is a powerful career tool and will be a significant bonus for members. “The benefits of activepassport are twofold,” she commented. “Workers can log all their training across the sector which in turn will facilitate career progression and opportunities. Employers can then gain access to these records, assisting the recruitment and training process. All this will ultimately help establish the professional status of our industry.”
