AoC Sport Our Strategy

Further education colleges provide high quality technical and professional education and training for over three million young people, adults and employers.

Colleges are inspirational places to learn, with education and training delivered by expert teaching staff in industry standard facilities. From basic skills to postgraduate degrees, colleges offer first rate academic and vocational teaching in a range of professions.

This document sets out a strategy for the development of college sport and physical activity. Although the economic climate has affected college funding and staffing levels since 2010, sport and activity has remained vibrant.

Over 400,000 students are active every week, college staff commit many voluntary hours to provide a mix of opportunities at all levels, and since 2012 Sport England’s Active Colleges programme has helped colleges offer varied opportunities.

This strategy:

› sets out a high-level vision and aims for the future of college sport and activity

› identifies objectives and potential actions for colleges, sport, health and community organisations

› identifies the behaviours, attitudes and motivations of groups of students

NOTE - We are currently consulting on the development of a new strategy due to launch in April 2022.
