The preservation of human life by the teaching of swimming, lifesaving and survival techniques.
STA is internationally recognised and is uniquely positioned as the only awarding organisation in the UK that can deliver multi-aquatic programmes – Swimming Teaching, Lifesaving and Pool Plant qualifications – that are:
All STA Qualifications are registered under Safety Training Awards, the awarding body for STA.
STA’s International Learn to Swim Programme (ILSP) also supports STA’s swimming teaching qualifications. The incentive based learn to swim programme, which promotes the importance of water safety, consists of 5 levels to provide people of all ages, from babies to adults, with a structured, progressive and transparent swimming and water scheme. It is supported with a range of colourful badges and certificates.
Importantly, STA is committed to representing the needs of the leisure industry and continues to advanceits range of learning programmes, improve member services and innovate via its digital portfolio of leisure management and training services.
Elevate was a fantastic place to get our product in front of decision makers from a lot of different sectors - it's not just health and fitness operators we’ve met, but GP’s, occupational and physical therapists, armed forces and an opportunity to talk with influential speakers from the entire physical activity sector.

Elevate is really important to us because all of the key partners in the sector come together, meaning CIMSPA get to meet a wide range of senior people who make critical decisions about their organisations workforce development. It also allows us to spread the message about the work CIMSPA is facilitating on behalf of the sector whilst getting as many people engaged with our workforce development strategy as possible.

Elevate is really important to London Sport so that we can meet new partners and audiences outside of our usual sports development group who can help us achieve our goal of getting one million more Londoners active by 2020. Over the two days we’re showcasing our London Sport services; different funding pots, insight portal and our new campaign, #LDNMovesMe, designed to inspire Londoners to celebrate their own physical activity!

At Elevate this year we were showcasing our Eco-Powr solution. Eco-Powr is where the bikes, treadmills and ellipticals push back 74% of what you generate into the local grid, which means you cut down the need for electricity within the whole building. Elevate provided a great platform for us to create awareness for our sustainable innovative solutions, and all sectors responded to the message that, sustainability should be a forming a key part of their facilities. Both days were very successful and The Power Tower challenge proved very popular, and a good way of getting the message through about how important sustainability is for this generation and future generations, alongside supporting a worthy charity such as Rainbows Children’s Hospice in Loughborough.

Elevate gives Keiser exposure to the region and showcases exactly what Keiser produce within our power, strength and cardio range. We were there to showcase our brand new Crush30 system for training which utilizes the ultimate and safest repetition in the world today gained from using our equipment. Our leading, smooth, durable and reliable M3i indoor bike is also on show.
Regional Business Manager
The Institute of Sport Exercise and Health (ISEH) represents a number of organisations across sport, exercise and health and one of the challenges is bringing all of these different organisations together in the same forum. Seeing conferences in action such as Elevate are crucial to the sport sectors development and a great opportunity to share best practice and learn from each other.
I think it’s great to bring everyone together and it gives everyone a great opportunity to showcase what they have to offer as well being able to showcase what the current trends are within the sports industry.
