AoC Sport Affiliates
Affiliate status provides an organisation with access to expert intelligence and the network of further education and sixth form colleges across England. Affiliation is specially tailored for organisations that have an interest in the delivery of sport and leisure, participation or physical activity and health programmes within the FE sector. This includes industry suppliers, employers, awarding bodies, local authorities, professional clubs, universities and other organisations who wish to expand their programmes or link with colleges. Affiliate subscription is open to organisations who have an interest in promoting their products or services within further education. These must demonstrate a clear benefit to the sector. Schools, academies and private training providers are not eligible for affiliate status.
Non-college Competition Entrant
Organisations which are funded to provide further education, but who are not further education and sixth form colleges incorporated under the 1992 Act, such as schools and training providers, can apply to take part in AoC Sport competitions. We offer league and cup competitions in six sports, organised by standard of play and geography to enable competitive, professional managed and, where possible, localised playing opportunities.
