Project
The primary objective of this programme proposal is to improve good governance in university sport, influencing how the aims for university sport are set and achieved to optimise and monitor performance. As part of this, the aims are to increase sports participation and to promote voluntary activity in sport, the latter being the ultimate aim of the Erasmus Sport + projects (European Commission [EC] 2016a, p. 222). The programme aims to help meet the objective ‘to promote and improve good governance in sport’ using actions that are supported by the EC as detailed within the Erasmus + Programm Guide (EC, 2016a, p. 222-223): 1. To increase knowledge and awareness of sport and active recreation provision in each partner country; 2. To strengthen the cooperation between partner organisations in sport and active recreation; 3. To improve the sharing of good practice in the governance of university sport and active recreation, influencing how the objectives for university sport are set and achieved to optimise and monitor performance; 4. To raise awareness of, and outcomes from, the added value of sport and physical activity on the personal and professional development of students, specifically to help enhance graduate employability factors; and 5. To encourage participation in sport and active recreation, particularly with those currently less active. Sport is being used here to incorporate all forms of sport and active recreation. The broader use of physical activity is not being looked at in terms of the UK National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines (Nice, 2013) or the UK Department of Health (Department of Health [UK], 2011) that include all forms of physical activity including ironing, gardening and moving heavy loads such as groceries. This research is interested in sport and active recreation as part of physical activity but not the full breath of the term physical activity. The word sport is sometimes used alone here for ease but refers to both sport and recreational activity.
