UK DIT (Coaches and Volunteers)

  

About UK DIT (C&V)

The UK Disability Inclusion Training project has been a landmark – the first of its kind within disability sport, and indicates a significant change in the working practices of the Home Nations Disability Sport Organisations (HNDSO) of Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and England.  Historically the provision of disability inclusion training has been delivered by each individual HNDSO, and by a range of external providers within each of the four Nations.  There are now 5 versions of the UK DIT workshop, of which the Coaches and Volunteers version is one.  This means that you will get a tailored experience reflecting the diversity of your needs, and identifying and reinforcing good practice within your area of the physical activity, sport and leisure industry. 

 

The overall aim of this workshop is to ensure that disabled people get great quality coaching and opportunity within your sport.  The six hour session combines a theory with a practical – which really does help to apply information relating to the Sports Inclusion Model and STEPS to an active environment which will give you ideas about how to develop and adapt skill-based activities which are relevant to your sport.

 

Within the workshop you will cover:

•  Perceptions and Experiences
•  Good coaching practice and the implications
•  Challenges to and solutions for participation
•  Key points around legislation relating to coaching and volunteering in sport
•  Disability Sport pathways and classification
•  Where to go for further help and guidance
•  The application of this to a practical environment

 

National Governing Bodies are working in partnership with the HNDSOs to create sport specific UK DIT workshops for their coaches – check with your Governing Body to see if there is a UK DIT (Sport Specific) for your sport.
