AoC Sport submits response to Sport England consultation
AoC Sport’s response to the Sport England strategy consultation was submitted this week.
The main points we’ve highlighted are:
- Investment is needed to reduce drop out from sport and physical activity between 16-18 years old. This is a critical life transition point where good participation and volunteering habits are formed.
- Colleges have a large captive, diverse audience of young people, a critical partner for delivering both participation and volunteering interventions.
- AoC Sport is a trusted partner of Sport England with a proven track record of delivery.
- Colleges need investment into a workforce to deliver participation and volunteering interventions, AoC Sports know the best places to invest to get the best return, and will support colleges to deliver the outcomes of the strategy.
Sport England will now be evaluating the responses to the strategy and are looking to publish it around Easter.
