Institute for Vocational exercise & Sport Training

InVEST is the specialist enterprise unit within the Cardiff School of Sport.  It was established in 2003 and is dedicated to the provision of sport development, coaching and sport science solutions as well as vocational education and training opportunities to the sport and leisure sector.

Because InVEST sits within the CSS it is able to benefit from the wide range of high quality skills and experiences offered by the School’s academic, coaching and sport development staff, as well as the high-class sports facilities and education resources available on site. We therefore are able to offer a range of services to support performers and coaches in their quest for sporting excellence.
