Sports Maker Programme

As part of Active Colleges, Sport England have invested up to £17 million over five years to create 150 full time sports development professionals – College Sport Makers. Here at Blackpool Sixth form we have our own College Sports Maker, Adam Hollett. Adam’s role is to link Blackpool Sixth with community sport opportunities in order to widen the offer for students; raising student participation in sport and reducing the drop out of young people from sport, especially at 16 and 18 years old. One of his key roles is in assisting sports’ national governing bodies in engaging college students with their programmes .
