Constructivist theory and a case study are used to argue (a) that personal and social skills can be learned through participation in sport, (b) that there can be transfer of skills acquisition from sport to career activity, and (c) that it is likely that formal education and training in the VET sector has not fully utilised the potential of sport for personal and social skills acquisition. It is also suggested that constructivism has not fully investigated sport in education as a defence against the divisive nature of if-it-works-use- it validation and the fact-value divide of moral relativism.
