Posted: Thu, 26 Jan 2017 11:30
The 'Give it a Go' programme (GIAG), created by Active Dorset County Sports Partnership in conjunction with the Arts University Bournemouth (AUB), has been entered into the County Sports Partnership network's 2017 Impact Awards competition.
With a participation target of 198 students before 31st March, almost 200 AUB students have already attended sessions since September 2016 and the second term has already shown an increase in participation.
In 2015, Active Dorset met with AUB and were told "…our students aren't interested in sport". One year on, the Student Union (AUBSU) have embraced the need for physical activity, worked with Active Dorset to successfully apply for Sportivate innovation funding and even employed a new member of staff to service the demand met by our research and insight. Active Dorset and AUBSU are working in collaboration to ensure that social, non-competitive sport and physical activity play a bigger part on campus and enriches the lives and health of AUB students.
