COMPASS - The ONLY trade
association for providers of physical
activity and school sport

COMPASS is a self-regulatory trade association for any sport and activity provider that works in a school environment. Members include responsible organisations from the private, public and charitable sector who deliver Physical Activity & School Sport.

Its members commit to minimum standards and ensure that staff are fit for purpose. All COMPASS members are committed that ALL STAFF are suitably qualified staff to deliver in schools, fit for purpose and will be advising schools on what 'good provision' looks like. Along with Sports Coach UK, it has been instrumental in developing a new LEVEL 3 qualification (launched Sept 2013), which is the most comprehensive training programme available for any professional delivering Sport or Physical Activity in the UK.

COMPASS members are at the forefront of the forthcoming Professional Register, which will recognise and signpost appropriate individuals capable of delivering fit for purpose, quality delivery into schools. Thus benefitting teachers by helping them make informed decisions on the appropriateness of their provider.

With its members delivering to MORE schools and MORE children than any other organisation or group in the UK, members have created a code of conduct and gained a seal of quality. This seal of quality will help schools and parents choose the safest and professional settings for children to attend.

Whoever you choose as an external provider to deliver your school sport - please ensure they are members of COMPASS.
