Admiral will partner with Disability Sport Wales to deliver its Mini-DIT (Diversity Inclusion Training) programme nationwide across Wales in 2019.
The rebranded Admiral Play Together Programme is creative inclusive learning aimed at primary school pupils Year’s 4, 5 and 6 (key stage 2). The literal meaning is mini disability inclusion training and the 40-minute session covers a range of topics related to inclusive sport and disability.
Admiral’s investment will give Disability Sport Wales the ability to deliver the programme throughout Wales where it will now be able to deliver approximately 50-60 classes to approximately 1,500 children across Wales. The investment will also give DSW the ability to produce ‘congratulations’ certificates for all of the children who participate. It will give schools/children a sense of achievement and ensure More Staff, More Schools, More Hours, More Fun.
Fiona Reid, Chief Executive of Disability Sport Wales said: “the partnership with Admiral to deliver the Play Together sessions to Junior school children across Wales is really significant to us. The potential impact of this work is huge – we learn so much from the ‘can do’ approach of children and they are our legacy – if young people think inclusively then there is an even better future of opportunity for disabled and non-disabled people to have fun, be active or competitive – whatever they want. Admiral’s support will ensure that we get out to as many schools as possible and inspire hundreds of the next generation to Play Together”.
Ceri Assiratti, Head of People Service at Admiral said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Disability Sport Wales on the Admiral Play Together Programme. Their approach to educating children on inclusivity is one which really stood out to us, particularly as we aim to make Admiral as inclusive a workplace as possible. We look forward to seeing the Programme being rolled out and inspiring children across Wales.”
