UP For Sport
The University of Portsmouth's UP For Sport scheme creates pathways for University students to use their sporting skills within the community. Students are recruited and provided with sports coaching qualifications, which are used to help develop sport in the local community. UP for Sport uses sport as a tool to engage young people and give them the opportunity to interact with University students in a positive way. UP For Sport works to enhance student experience, give valuable experience to volunteers and develop volunteer skills for future employment.
