The Sports Education Programme (SEP) is a collaborative partnership between Singapore Sports Council (SSC) and the Ministry of Education (MOE). Schools eligible for SEP are Primary, Secondary, JCs, Centralised Institution and Special Education Schools. Under SEP, each school is provided with a $10,000 dollar-to-dollar matching grant for them to take up sports programmes from an endorsed list. The SEP aims to advocate the importance of sports education, encourage sports participation in schools and increase sporting opportunities for the young. It also serves as an integrated and structured approach to link sports service providers with schools to ensure that innovative and quality sports programmes are delivered.
Vivarch’s SEP sports programmes are assessed by a panel comprising representatives from the SSC, MOE, schools, sports educators and practitioners.
SEP sports programmes cater for development of skills and sports knowledge of students and help promote active participation of sports in schools. These programmes also promote team spirit and character building, and arouse interest in continual sports participation amongst students. Endorsed programmes are classified into 4 categories: Sports Exposure, Sports Play, Sports Development and Sports Leagues.
