The UK Sports Industry has seen significant growth in the past ten years and currently employs nearly one million people. According to the latest research from Pearson, Sports and Fitness related occupations are one of the key areas predicted to grow through to 2030. Over the same period we have also seen a significant increase in the number of students applying for and studying sports related courses in higher education. Sport and exercise is in the top ten in terms of the most popular HE courses.

This event will provide attendees with an opportunity to find out more about the latest developments in this industry as well as studying sports in higher education. The event will also focus on supporting learners with making informed choices and preparing a strong application, as well as graduate career opportunities.

Speakers at the event will include representatives from AoC Sport, Deirdre Nugent, Subject Lead Sport and Exercise at Pearson, Richard Buscombe, Programme Leader BSc Sport and Exercise Science at the University of East London and Marianne Boyle, Head of Sports Strategy at the University of Greenwich.

This event will be of interest to staff delivering sports related courses as well as anyone in FE or HE who advises learners about making applications to higher education, and who would like to find out more and increase their knowledge within the field of Sport.
