Students Host a Successful Multi-Sport Event for Local SEND Schools


Our sport level 2 students showcased their dedication and organisational skills as they successfully executed a multi-sport event aimed at local SEND (special educational needs and disabilities) schools. The event was the final step in a year-long project for the students, who were responsible for planning and running it. 

Throughout the year, the students carefully planned every detail of the event, from inviting participating schools and conducting risk assessments to health and safety briefings. 

David Crossman at VANS (voluntary North Somerset) provided the students generous support in reaching out to schools, supporting the students to manage their event confidently and determinedly. Their dedication was further underscored by the delivery of a practice event before Christmas, allowing them to refine their strategies and make informed decisions for the main event. 

"The project-based unit has been an incredible learning experience for our sport level 2 students," remarked Jack Gadd, Sports Academy and Enrichment Manager. "Not only did it offer them the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge in a practical setting, but it also gave them a sense of responsibility and ownership over their work. The success of the multi-sport event shows how hard they worked and how committed they were”. 

The event, which brought together students from local SEND schools, not only fostered a spirit of inclusivity and teamwork but also provided a platform for participants to showcase their athletic talents and skills across various sports. 

This project forms part of the Sports and Fitness Careers Excellence Hub. The College has fourteen sector-specific Career Excellence Hubs, which evidence our dedication to supporting both employers and learners in achieving their future goals. By creating a seamless connection between industry and education, we enable learners to acquire not only the essential skills and knowledge but also the professional networks necessary to excel in their chosen fields.
