Assignment Details and Instructions.

 

Assignment Details:

 

Write a 2,500 word individual report (+/- 10%).

 

Students should select one of the three current sport policies that have been identified within the governments new sport strategy (Sporting Future: A New Strategy for an Active Nation).

 

Students should refer to the specific policy theory introduced in the lectures and tutorials to help them analyse and critically review their chosen sport policy.

 

Students are advised to be selective in the utilisation of the number of programmes and projects that have been implemented to support the delivery of your chosen sport policy. This is to avoid a descriptive account being provided of all the programmes and projects that could be attributed to your chosen sport policy. By way of a guideline, the selection of 2-4 programmes and projects will suffice to answer this specific part of the assessment brief.

 

Students should also refer to the five outcomes identified in ‘Sporting Future: A New

Strategy for an Active Nation) when answering this specific part of the assessment brief.
