UK Sport and IDEALS project
UK Sport has a clear remit at the ‘top end’ of Britain’s sporting pathway, investing in initiatives nationally and internationally. UK Sport’s initial involvement in the International Development through Excellence and Leadership in Sport (IDEALS) Project aimed to increase the employability of UK Students and their international counterparts through a peer to peer sport-based programme that developed their sport, leadership and life skills. IDEALS was established as a high quality, progressive and coordinated sports leadership development exchange programme for young people aged 20 and above. UK Sport continue to be involved with the Volunteer Zambia programme in an advisory role to the Wallace Group.
