10:00 am - 2:30 pm
Havant and South Downs College
This popular network is the result of an exciting partnership between AOSEC and AoC Sport. Open to AOSEC network subscribers and members of AoC sport. The network supports the development of all aspects of sport related activity in colleges and covers both curriculum and operational.
AoC Sport provides national updates at every meeting. External organisations have included, WorkdSkills UK and the National Citizenship Service. College experiences play a large role in this network, with colleagues from in and out of the region, presenting innovative work and best practice.
Group discussions feature at every network, giving delegates the opportunity to raise any concerns or challenges.
Ashley Grute, Head of Sport and Public Services at South Downs College, chairs this successful network.
This network is divided into two sections which overlap with a networking lunch and some topics that are relevant to both groups. The morning session is focused on sports curriculum and the afternoon is for operational matters such as competitions. Delegates can attend either the morning, afternoon or both sessions. Timings for arrival and departure for the two sessions are outlined below.
