Sport and Public Services

Our sport courses are based at Cardiff International Sports Campus (CISC) – the inspirational home for CAVC Sport.

About Sport and Public Services

CISC features excellent sports facilities including a large gym, fitness studios, Airdome enclosed 3G pitch and athletics track. You will also have the chance to develop your skills through opportunities such as leading coaching sessions or undertaking work placements in sport. Our sport courses cover a variety of areas – from sports and exercise science, to sports performance and excellence. Our exciting partnership with Cardiff Blues means we offer a specialist Rugby Coaching Development and Fitness programme at the BT Sports Cardiff Arms Park. Our Public Services courses are designed to prepare students for successful entry into any of the uniformed public services, so the learning is focused upon investigating the work of the Police Service, Fire & Rescue Service, Ambulance Service, Armed Forces and Prison Service.

#YourCAVC

Our Sport courses and Cardiff based Public Services courses are delivered at the new home for CAVC Sport in Leckwith – Cardiff International Sports Campus. With the latest facilities including Airdome enclosed 3G pitch, fully equipped gyms and athletics track, there’s no better place to be if you’re serious about sport.

#YourFuture
