UNIT AIM: The organisation of sport in the UK can be quite complex with multiple agencies and organisations, both inside of and outside of the UK, working together at different levels on different agendas. One of the key areas which most, if not all, of the organisations involved in sport in the UK are concerned with is sports development and the increase of participation in sport and physical activity, both to improve the health of the nation but also to aid the development of elite athletes who can compete and achieve on an international level.
In this unit you will gain an understanding of the organisations involved in sport in the UK, their roles and responsibilities and how they work together. You will also gain an understanding of sports development, including the organisations involved, who sports development is targeted at and why, how sports development is carried out and how the success of sports development initiatives can be measured.
