9.40 - 10.10 Understanding Scotland’s sporting system
Jacqueline Lynn, Head of School and Community Sport, sportscotland
This session will explain Scotland’s sporting system and where and how Sport for Change fits in, identifying opportunities for collaboration and highlighting the role of sport in delivering social change. Sport can be a way of reaching and engaging people in activities that support them to achieve outcomes beyond sport and sportscotland’s partnership approach and commitment to developing effective networks is a key element of this. Jacqueline will help to set the scene for the remainder of today’s sessions by explaining the 4 elements of sportscotland’s plan; resources, enablers, environments and outcomes and will share the priority areas for improvement over the next 3 years. By understanding the plan to build a world class sporting system for everyone in Scotland you will begin to see your role in delivering social change through sport.
