About the Register

Capre is the Children’s Activity Professionals Register. A Children’s Activity Professional is someone who delivers physical activity for children and young people in the area of multi-disciplinary games, sports, and physical activity.

Capre, is an independent register for individuals working in the children’s physical activity industry which:

  • Recognises the expertise and qualifications of those working in children’s activity roles
  • Offers assurance to parents, schools and employers that all registered children’s activity professionals have suitable qualifications and the ability to perform their specific roles
  • Provides a system of regulation to ensure that individuals meet agreed National Occupational Standards, which describe the knowledge, competence and skills of good practice.

The Register is owned and operated by SkillsActive, the not-for-profit Sector Skills Council for Active Leisure, Learning and Well-being.

Capre receives support from our partner COMPASS, and other key organisations in the industry: Fit for Sport, Let Me Play, Fulham FC Foundation, Super Camps and Sports Plus Scheme.

All Capre Members:

  • Meet the industry’s nationally recognised qualification standards
  • Are committed to professional development
  • Are bound by a Code of Ethical Conduct.

How Capre works

The Capre membership categories are based on the industry agreed National Occupational Standards (NOS), which define the knowledge and skills needed.

The qualifications that allow entry to the register have been collated and a new fit for purpose framework has been created and a single qualification structure for each role is being developed. This will define the operational categories for the register and will give clarity to employers regarding the qualifications that are relevant for the sector.

All Capre members are required to complete Continuing Professional Development (CPD) ensuring their skills continually meet industry standards (set by SkillsActive).
