Since 2009 our Skills, Education and Training programmes have enabled over 6000 people to gain qualifications and progress in life.

Our courses harness the ‘power of sport’ to positively engage learners who otherwise may struggle educationally.  Clients including Central Government, Colleges, Prisons and Local Authorities recognise how sport can engage learners in a way that almost no other subject can.

Our tutors expertly blend practical sport with robust, academic modules to create a unique learner experience.  Over 92% of learners (2017-18) gained nationally accredited qualifications and successfully progressed into education and/or employment within 12 months.



Some headline figures highlight the positive impact our unique programme offers (from 2017-18):

Success Rate: 92%
Retention Rate: 84%
Progression Rates: 93%
Learner Feedback: 98% Satisfaction
Client / Parent Feedback: 94% Satisfaction


Blending high quality, nationally recognised accreditations with vocational and practical sport is central to our approach – and something we take seriously.

We have invested in training and quality systems resulting in kitemarks from Central Government (ROTO: Register of Training Organisations; RoATP: Register of Approved Training Providers) and have been audited by the ESFA (Education Skills Funding Authority) who found our processing standards to be ‘outstanding’.

Sport Works is also an approved centre with both NCFE and Sports Leaders UK which enable us to deliver high quality, internationally recognised qualifications to our learners.
