Inclusive Activity Programme online training
All face-to-face Inclusive Activity Programme workshops have been stopped due to COVID-19. In response, Activity Alliance and delivery partner, UK Coaching, have developed two online learning opportunities.
Disabled people including those with long-term health conditions are the least active group in society, and inequalities are widening further during the pandemic. Now, more than ever, it is important that organisations and individuals continue to access this specialist training.
New eLearning Inclusive Activity Programme Module offers a fun and interactive introduction to making physical activity inclusive and accessible to everyone. It is ideal for healthcare professionals, sports coaches, volunteers and community leaders. Kick-start your development before attending one of our live online classroom sessions (see details below,) or a face-to-face workshop in the future.
Key module features:
- Learn independently, complete the module in your own time
- Interactive activities throughout, including videos from disabled people about their experiences of being active
- Opportunities to test your knowledge
- Free to access (for a limited time)
The modules takes approximately 1 hour to complete. You can complete it at your own pace and take regular breaks throughout. For the best experience, we recommend using a desktop computer or laptop. Internet access is required. To ensure the training is accessible to as many people as possible, it includes voice-over, video captions and screen reader accessibility features.
Live online classrooms
