What is it?

The Active Kids for All Inclusive Community Training (AK4A ICT) is a scheme designed primarily for those who support disabled people of all ages within the community; these people are likely to be from the community and disability sectors, not sports based organisations or backgrounds. The training will help to develop the skills and confidence to include disabled people in sporting activity.

Kent Sport will be running the Sainsbury’s Active Kids for All Inclusive Community Training and hope to run a number of courses across the County so keep an eye out for when it comes to a venue near you. If you are interested in having your own closed workshop please get in contact with us via email to Carolyn Dool.

Who is it for?

The training is aimed at individuals and organisations that support disabled people of all ages within the community, including:

  • support workers, including those in day, community and faith centres
  • parents
  • carers
  • healthcare professionals
  • volunteers
  • community-based groups and organisations

People working within sport-specific environments will be signposted to access inclusion training identified or provided by their governing body of sport.

What does it involve?

The AK4A Inclusive Community Training consists of a three hour practical workshop complemented by online learning that will support the workshop participants before and after the training.

During the face to face workshop participants will:

  • learn 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 your activity sessions going forward
  • learn about local disability sport opportunities for participants, leaders, volunteers and coaches

Next workshop - details of the next course will be announced in due course. If you are interested in having your own closed workshop please get in contact with us via email to Carolyn Dool.
