Who we are

for sport, fitness and physical activity on university campuses.

What we do

BUCS works with student athletes, athletic union staff and elected officers as well as professional
sporting staff, coaches and volunteers at 153 member institutions. It offers a comprehensive, multisport
competition structure and manages the development of services and facilities for

BUCS National and Regional Structure
At a national level, BUCS is governed by a Board and Executive Group. More information can be found via Below that, the Regions and Nations Chairs Forum is in the process of shaping
the structures that exist within each region so that there is a consistent approach to developing the core
work of the organisation at a local level, whilst allowing crucial regional distinctiveness and flexibility to
develop their own working areas. The key to effectively making this work is the integration of student and
professional advisory groups, which had previously worked in parallel as BUSA and UCS respectively.

The North West was fortunate to have strong working relationships between the two groups, and has
successfully implemented a regional structure that is being used as a template of good practice throughout
the other nations and regions that BUCS represents. This is shown in the diagram below.

Nations and Regions Chairs Forum

The group is led by the Executive Group Portfolio holder for Nations and Regions, BUCS Head of
Professional and Regional Development, elected members of the BUCS Executive Group alongside the
Student and Staff Chairs from each of the regions. The groups’ key role is to act as a conduit between each
region and BUCS nationally, creating a two way passage of information to enhance policy and structural
development of the new organisation.

       3   NW Regional Profile 2008/2009 –
North West Executive Group

This group is made up of 8 officers in the elected positions of Staff Chair, Student Chair,
BUCS NW Manager, Communication Officer, Marketing and Website Officer and the
Chairs of each of the 3 Regional Advisory Groups. The Executive meet 4 times per year
at least 2 weeks prior to the Regions and Nations Chairs Forum. The main role of the group is to represent
the interests of the NW’s HEI’s to BUCS via the Nations and Regions Chairs Forum, to guide the work of
the advisory groups and provide a unified voice for the sector to other representative groups such as the
North West Universities Association, Sport England, County Sport Partnerships National Governing Bodies
of Sport.

Competition and Participation Advisory Group

This is very much student focussed, led by an elected student chair with a more experienced administrator
as vice chair. The group is the natural successor to the BUSA regional meetings and mainly concentrates
on the BUCS sporting offer, with issues such as competition structures, schedules, transport and umpiring
high on the agenda. The group is evolving to look at broader issues such as raising levels of participation
on campus through intra mural competition; taster sessions led by AU clubs and Give it a Go events.

Facilities and Operations Advisory Group

There is strong engagement of all facility managers in HEI within this group, with core work areas including
sharing of best practice on the management of Swimming Pools, Indoor and Outdoor Facilities,
Management Information Systems, Health and Safety, Utilities Control and Equipment Procurement.

Workforce Development Advisory Group

This group is more professional based, with a higher ratio of membership from employed HEI and FE staff.
The main focus of the group is to enhance the quality of coach, volunteer and official development in HE
and FE. The group has made strong links with external partners, engaging representation from County
Sports Partnerships, Sports Coach UK, NW Coaching Agency, Sports Volunteering North West and the
North West Universities Association. An audit of Coaching and Volunteering is currently taking place
through NWUA to give a more informed position of need through HE in the NW. This process could be
replicated in FE in 2009.

Position Statement

Each of the Advisory Groups meets 3 to 4 times per year and is in the process of formulating individual
terms of reference and action plans to clarify their roles. Establishing specific outcomes will be a key theme
of the conference in April 2009, after which a regional action plan will be in place via the BUCS website
from September 2009.
