College Sport Strategy: Fit for College, Fit for Work, Fit for Life
AoC Sport is delighted to present an exciting new national sport and physical activity strategy for colleges and all organisations that wish to work with them: ‘Fit for College, Fit for Work, Fit for Life’.
Sport and physical activity are essential components of college life, providing significant advantages in terms of education, employment and health.
The strategy runs for the next five years and aims to encourage every college student to participate in sport or physical activity on a regular basis.
Numerous factors have been identified in putting together the strategy, including the objectives for colleges, sport, health and community organisations as well as the behaviours, attitudes and motivations of students.
The strategy sets out some ambitious but achievable targets in terms of growing participation (particularly among females), offering greater provision for those with disabilities and growing the number volunteer placements in the sector.
The strategy can be viewed as a PDF here, under the 'sport and education policy' section.
