The online learning will enable participants to develop an increased understanding of inclusion in physical activity and sport, by:
- Recognising why sport and physical activity is beneficial and appealing to everyone
- Recognising what sport looks like for disabled people in England
- Recognising the aspiration to ensure that physical activity is inclusive, provides equal opportunities and results in more disabled people taking part
- Identifying the perceived barriers which can prevent disabled people from taking part in physical activity and sport
- Considering what they can do to break down barriers for disabled people in physical activity and sport
- Recognising the possible pathways for themselves as leaders and for the disabled people that they support.
Building on the knowledge gained through the online learning, during the workshop participants will undertake a range of practical activities which will enable them to:
- Learn about practical tools to support inclusive delivery
- Explore creative ideas to support disabled people to take part in physical activity and sport
- Complete a workbook that will support participants activity sessions after the course
- Learn about local opportunities for participants, leaders, volunteers and coaches in physical activity and sport.
These learning objectives are achieved by focusing on the different elements of the Inclusion Spectrum and STEP. For example, participants will explore why open activities are essential to create an inclusive feel and how to modify an activity to include
and challenge all individuals. For each element, attendees will have opportunities to both try different activities and to create their own, enabling them to develop a list of inclusive activities they can deliver in the future.
