Conferences & Events

AoC Sport runs sport, network and training events for our member colleges, staff and students. Our events range from high-profile national conferences for senior college management, to bespoke training programmes.

AoC Sport National Conference 2021

Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 May 2021 | Online Event

For the first time, the AoC Sport National Conference combined our curriculum, football and sports development strands into one online event for 2021, which was sponsored by NCFE. 

Aiming to connect the whole sector, the conference featured high profile keynotes, such as England Netball captain Serena Guthrie, topical presentations and discussions pertinent to further education and sport, alongside a variety of different workshops which were relevant for delegates with an interest in policy and curriculum, football, sport, physical activity or health.

Information on next year’s event will be emailed to members nearer the time. 

Network meetings

We operate network meetings in each of the nine AoC Sport regions to give member colleges the opportunity to discuss key issues and share ideas. Heads of Sport and Operations Group meetings take place each term.


We offer a growing programme of training and development opportunities for college staff and students through the AoC Sport Leadership Academy.
