Scottish Student Sport (SSS) is the national coordinating and advocacy organisation for active health and sport across colleges and universities.

SSS’ work is closely aligned to student wellbeing and helps to quality assure a vibrant system of student run activities, as outlined in Section 4. Active health and sport contribute significantly to a healthy student experience and can harness the following powers to the benefit of students, institutions, and communities:

  • The power of good physical, mental & social health;
  • The power of fun, enjoyment & satisfaction;
  • The power of belonging, achievement & pride;
  • The power to enhance learning, development & employability;
  • The power to actively address inequalities & promote a positive culture.

SFC provides strategic funding for SSS to deliver:

  1. bespoke education, training and consultancy to staff and students at member colleges and universities;
  2. active health opportunities that engage a far greater number of students through promoting physical, mental and social health;
  3. hundreds of learning and volunteering opportunities in areas such representation, coaching, officiating, leadership and event delivery;
  4. additional support to colleges to improve the student experience through active health and sport;
  5. qualitative improvement to sports club culture with projects focussing on inclusion, equalities, safety and charitable activity;
  6. a vibrant calendar of student sports competition across a wide range of activities and levels.
