The University of Wales Trinity Saint David aims to transform education in Wales and by doing so transform the lives of the individuals and communities who are connected to us.

The School of Sport, Health and Outdoor Education has a number of exciting, progressive, vocational programmes available at the UWTSD Swansea campus in areas of Sport and Stadium Management. In addition there are also a range of sport based courses on our Carmarthen Campus from Outdoor Education to Sports Therapy. Sport is a thriving industry from elite performers to National Governing Bodies (NGB's) administrators. Plus the recent growth of the sports events market from triathlons to obstacles races and the enhancements in the low cost gym sector which gives more opportunities for employment and future career development. Recent developments have seen the emergence of the Watersports sector with its thriving global opportunities which has resulted in the development of a BA in Watersports Management. All our programmes are linked closely to industry providers where many programmes have a compulsory placement module which enables students to gain real life and credible work experience prior to graduation.

Arriva Trains Wales Disability Sport Wales

Junior Disabled Sportsperson of the Year sponsored by Arriva Trains WalesOpens new window in Partnership with Disability Sport WalesOpens new window

Welsh sport is committed to 'inspiring the delivery of bigger and better outcomes for sport'. Our sports sector's vision is to 'Unite a Proud Sporting Nation', where 'Every Child is hooked on Sport for Life' and where Wales is a 'Nation of Champions'.

Disability Sport Wales is committed to this common vision and believes it has a pivotal and unique role in helping to drive transformational change by building upon past experience and recent success.

Our aim is to contribute to the Vision for Sport by creating a more inclusive sports sector where every disabled person is hooked on sport, offering real choice as to where, when and how often people play sport. We believe that this approach will help to secure the sector's goal of 'more people, more active, more often'.

To achieve this transformation, however, means that we must be ambitious - we must set the bar high. We cannot achieve significant change through Disability Sport Wales alone. We need to bring existing as well as new partners on the journey with us. We must challenge our partners and the wider sporting landscape to accept and embrace inclusion, and in so doing, provide even greater levels of activity for disabled people.
