AoC Sport works with colleges and partners to support curriculum development in sport.

We work with awarding organisations and employers to provide advice and guidance on study programmes design.

Our partnership with the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) enables us to advise our members on the skill requirements of the sport and fitness industry enabling them to develop appropriate study programmes. We also use this partnership to advocate the use of colleges as apprenticeship training providers for many of the large employers in CIMSPA’s membership. 

Regional Networks

We provide regional network opportunities for Heads of Sport to receive national updates, share best practice and discuss current issues. Details can be found on the regional page of the website.

Sport Curriculum Conference

Our annual Sport in the Curriculum Conference provides further opportunity for college staff to discover resources, best practice and partners to further enhance their offer.
