At the end of term, sport representatives from the Preparation for Work and Life department took part in a 3-hour Inclusive Sport Training course at the WISE Campus that aimed to equip learners with specialist skills and knowledge to deliver practical physical activity sessions to diverse audiences.
The students learned how to create inclusive environments through the application of the sport principles ‘Space Task Equipment People’. The learners were given various scenarios, which required them to explore and consider different ways that activities can be tailored using STEP to suit individual needs. There were some extremely innovative ideas developed throughout the day, clearly demonstrating how inclusion and equality is at the forefront of the learner’s minds.
Megan Knowelden, Sport Development Officer commented:
"The learners were enthusiastic, demonstrated great teamwork and confidently gave instructions, whilst also learning various warm up, boccia and cricket activities. Due to their success, they will now be supporting the Sport Development Team with the delivery of a number of summer sports days, providing opportunities to apply their new knowledge to real life scenarios. Well done to all involved!"
