The Get Set Network connects schools and colleges to the 'turbo charge effect' of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, to inspire children and young people to achieve new and exciting things in their own learning and social communities.
Get Set initiatives include arts-based projects, environmental activities, making new links with other organisations, initiatives involving respect or friendship, and many more. The focus is provided the set of Olympic and Paralympic Values - rather than sport itself.
