ASSIGNMENT BRIEF- AGENCY REVIEW
You will produce a double-sided, A3 agency review poster which both describes and explains the roles your chosen sporting agencies play in the delivery of sport and physical activity within the UK.
You will focus on at least two agencies so you will need to carryout research to find out which agencies might work closely together. For example, the FA might work with Sport England in order to fund grassroots football facilities; they may also work with Sports Coach UK to develop coaching within football and the English Institute of Sport to develop elite footballers.
The poster should outline the main roles and responsibilities of the agencies including: areas of work, objectives, structure, and funding. It will also need to outline the position the agencies hold within the structure of sport delivery in the UK, and the programmes/initiatives the agencies use in order to increase the delivery of sport and physical activity in the UK. You should also consider the agencies relationship with other agencies, core target groups, and how they measure their programmes success rates.
This is an academic piece of work so evidence of research, within the text on the poster, and a reference list are required.
An indicative list of agencies includes: The Department of Culture, Media and Sport, Department of Education, UK Sport, Sport England, Sports Council for Wales, Sport Scotland, Sports Council for Northern Ireland, Specific National Governing Bodies (e.g. The FA, ECB, RFU, England Golf), Youth Sports Trust, English Federation of Disability Sport, Women’s Sport Foundation UK, Sporting Equals, Central Council for Physical Recreation, English Institute of Sport, Sports Coach UK, and the UK Coaching Certificate.
