Making a case for sport

AoC Sport is the lead organisation for college sport and physical activity. We promote, support and deliver college sport and physical activity. As part of promoting the sector we gather and disseminate a wide variety of information to support the use of sport and physical activity to improve outcomes for students and colleges.


Towards Outstanding is a set of national standards for college sport and has been developed in line with the new Ofsted Common Inspection Framework and our strategy ‘Fit for College, Fit for Work, Fit for Life’. AoC Sport members can also access tools to support self-assessment and action planning.


Our annual sport survey collects and analyses data from colleges for use as management information with regional and national benchmarks. It also provides a valuable advocacy tool to make the case for further investment into college sport and physical activity nationally.
