The voice of specialist further education

Natspec Games

Since 2016, Natspec has been organising the Natspec Games. This national sport competition provides inclusive sporting opportunities for young people with special educational needs and disabilities.

The Natspec Games, supported by Sport England and AoC Sport, are held each year. Host colleges provide a variety of inclusive sporting opportunities for students to take part in. Fun is the aim of the day, but we also give students a chance to demonstrate and celebrate their skills.

This video was taken at the 2019 South West Natspec Games, hosted at ROC College, and shows the range of activities on offer to the students.

For more information about the Natspec Games and future sporting opportunities for young people with SEND, please get in touch with us at

Upcoming Natspec Games

In 2023 we will once again be hosting a virtual Natspec Games, in collaboration with Sense Active, for learners across the country to engage in. There will also be multiple in-person opportunities.

Sorry - nothing to show here at this time. Please check back soon!
