RELAYS (Regional Educational Legacy in Arts and Youth Sport) is one of the programmes designed to create a positive and lasting legacy beyond 2012. Funded by Legacy Trust UK, an independent charity set up to build a lasting cultural and sporting legacy from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), it is supported by a range of partners, including 13 of the region’s universities (Universities South West, 2010). Here the partnership formed by the RELAYS School Events Coordinator, and the Events and Sports Management tutors from the School of Services Management at Bournemouth University is described. Through this collaboration, opportunities are being created to enhance the student experience both within the curricula and external to it, throughout the period of study.
