Sports Education Opportunities In India

DU: Sports Education Shaping In India
India, very recently started investing on Sports Education with a great interest and it is said to be outpacing the country's relatively high economic growth rates, by creating openings for New Zealand Sports Education providers.


India's Delhi University Women's Football Team training with the Asian Pacific Football academy at Lincoln University is an early live example of growing activities between India and New Zealand sports education providers.

While the Delhi University Project is helping to build connections at Institutional level, there are opportunities emerging across a range of sports education and related disciplines.

India's Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports (MYAS) has a focus and a New Zealand $370 Million Annual budget in order to develop sports in India. Every Indian school with more than 100 students is expected to employ a part time physical education (PE) instructor. When this legislative requirement is fully implemented, millions of physical education instructors and teachers must be trained or up skilled.

The Indian Government has also said it will set up sports institutes, with private sector support, in every district of the country. Private sector involvement in sports education is one on this rise. Moreover, India is also broadening the types of sports it plays.

Based on the current trends in India, and interest from the Indian system, the following disciplines and areas could be explored for opportunities in India like Sports management, Physical education in schools, High performance centres and Sport science and medicine.

Education New Zealand's New Delhi office helped Delhi and Lincoln universities and the Asia Pacific Football Academy get their partnership underway.
