Sports: Further Education

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 12 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many co-ordinators of sport in further education were appointed in each of the last three years; and how many are planned to be appointed in the next three years. (208223)

I have been asked to reply.

As part of the PE and Sport Strategy for Young People, 20 pilot FE sport co-ordinators have been in post since April 2008. Appointment of co-ordinators for all of the 377 FE colleges will begin in September 2008. We aim to have them all in place by January 2009. No sport co-ordinators in further education existed before 2008.
