MOVE Programme

MOVE Centre of Excellence status is awarded to organisations using the MOVE Programme in the most effective way. Our Centres of Excellence are shining examples of best practice who not only provide exceptional MOVE provision for the children and young people within their own setting, but who also act as ambassadors for the programme and work closely with MOVE Europe to develop and introduce the MOVE Programme to other organisations. Only 21 organisations in the UK have achieved Centre of Excellence status.
