Sport and Leisure: A Subject-Based Aspect Report on Provision in Scotland's Colleges by HM Inspectors on Behalf of the Scottish Funding Council
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education
The HM Inspectorate of Education (HMIE) publication, "External Quality Arrangements for Scotland's Colleges, September, 2008" specified that HMIE will produce a number of subject aspect reports over the four years 2008-2012. These reports complement in a subject-specific context the generic evaluations of learning and teaching in HMIE's reports of colleges. Colleges should act on the recommendations contained in these reports. College inspectors will monitor action towards implementation of these recommendations as part of their normal dialogue with colleges and will wish to discuss issues arising from subject aspect reports during annual engagement visits. In preparing this report, inspectors visited a sample of eight colleges, drew on the findings of published HMIE external reviews of colleges and examined other relevant publications and reports. They consulted with key stakeholders, including college staff, learners, employers, and professional bodies. This report evaluates college programmes which lead to vocational qualifications in sports or sport-related industries, offered at levels 4 to 8 of the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF). Excellent practice found by HM Inspectors is identified and the report also sets out recommendations for improvement. Appended are: (1) Colleges visited in the fieldwork for this report; (2) Sport and leisure programmes: Summary of data over three years; and (3) Glossary of terms. (Contains 1 table and 11 footnotes.)
