What Makes The UK Sport Academy Unique?

As an organisation we have committed to providing our learners with the best learning environment possible. This includes the use of technology and specifically our custom built online learning platform. Our platform is a one-stop shop for learners, tutors and quality assurance staff. The platform features assignments, progress tracking, learner reviews, ILP’s, student profiles and IQA functions.

This platform has recently been through an Ofsted visit, with inspectors commenting on how valuable the platform was as a resource for both learners & tutors.
