Volunteering programme

Become a volunteer

Volunteers Inspiring People via Sport (VIPS) is a programme which has taken inspiration from London 2012 and played an important part in the lead up to the games and beyond.

The VIPS programme aims to increase:

  • active participation in sport within the local community;
  • awareness of further and higher education through sport;
  • the number of students volunteering in sports-related activities;
  • the coaching and participation opportunities for students in sport; and
  • the experience and leadership skills of students and encouraging them into the sports sector.

The VIPS programme is open to all students who wish to:

  • learn new skills;
  • gain a sports coaching award;
  • gain a dance instructor award;
  • work in the local community; and
  • improve employability and diversify your CV.
