More than 170 delegates attend successful AoC Sport in the Curriculum Conference

The AoC Sport in the Curriculum Conference 2017 was a huge success, with more than 170 delegates from colleges, National Governing Bodies and sports organisations attending the one-day event at Loughborough University’s Holywell Park.


The day was opened by AoC Sport chair Mark White OBE, before Andy Reed OBE gave his keynote speech to a packed room.

There was then a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style session where several companies were allowed three minutes each to pitch to the attending delegates, and this was followed throughout the remainder of the day by a number of breakout sessions.

The breakouts were split into four time slots, with delegates able to choose which they attended. Sessions were run by the likes of WorldSkills UK, Ofsted, Football Foundation, CIMSPA, The Education and Training Foundation, and the Federation of Awarding Bodies, as well as a number of individual colleges.



Stuart Allen, Director of Learning for Health, Wellbeing and Society at Chesterfield College said: “It was an exceptional conference where workshops were both meaningful and engaging with the event providing excellent networking opportunities. There is a lot to take back to our college to discuss, debate and implement. I would highly recommend this conference to anyone working within this sector.”

We would like to thank Active IQ for sponsoring the AoC Sport in the Curriculum Conference, as well as all the delegates, speakers and exhibitors who made the day such a great occasion. We look forward to seeing you all again next year.
