Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

DUNDEE and An­gus Col­lege is the winning project for Ten­nis Scot­land’s Ed­u­ca­tion Pro­gramme award.

The col­lege has in­cluded lo­cal­ly­de­vised ten­nis units into var­i­ous lev­els of the cur­ricu­lum (4, 5 and 6), with


ad­di­tional vol­un­teer­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able at lev­els 7 and 8.

The adding of the ten­nis pro­gramme into the cur­ricu­lum has re­sulted in 48 ded­i­cated hours of lec­tures in the cur­rent aca­demic year, en­abling 58 stu­dents to par­tic­i­pate in ten­nis for a min­i­mum of eight weeks.

A weekly touch ten­nis club is open to all stu­dents and staff, in­clud­ing Aber­tay stu­dents, with more than 65 play­ers tak­ing ad­van­tage.

A weekly in­clu­sive touch ten­nis club for sup­ported ed­u­ca­tion stu­dents in­tro­duced last Novem­ber is en­joyed by 10 reg­u­lar par­tic­i­pants.

The col­lege has up­skilled 48 stu­dents to be­come ten­nis lead­ers and a fur­ther three have been sup­ported through their UKCC level 1 qual­i­fi­ca­tion, all of which en­hances their CVs.

Now 32 stu­dents are in­volved in eight week coach­ing place­ments in lo­cal pri­mary schools.


Those in­volved in the Dundee and An­gus lo­cally-de­vised ten­nis units take a break.
