Sainsbury’s Inclusive Community Training Programme (AK4A ICT)

To continue the momentum and create a lasting legacy for disabled people after The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Sainsbury’s Inclusive Community Training Programme, part of the Active Kids For All scheme has been established, supported by a £1million investment from Sport England.

This initiative is being delivered through the English Federation of Disability Sport (EFDS) and sports coach UK.

Improve your confidence in delivering activities to disabled people

Sainsbury’s Inclusive Community Training Programme is a three-hour practical workshop complemented by eLearning that will support you before and after the training. The learning will help improve your knowledge, competence and confidence in delivering sports-based activities to disabled people.

"Excellently delivered. I really enjoyed the balance of practical and theory. The tutor was really passionate about the subject matter and was very inclusive in his approach of our group."

"Thank you, an enjoyable evening sharing and gaining knowledge from others."

Duration

  • Pre-course eLearning – approximately 45 minutes
  • Workshop – three hours

"Very good indeed. It really felt clear how ‘step by step’ you can adapt, tailor and modify. The best inclusion training I have had in terms of making it manageable, realistic and practical."

Number of participants

12–22

Who is the training for?

The Sainsbury’s Inclusive Community Training Programme is for those who:

  • Represent a community based group or organisation where the primary focus is not currently as a sport or physical activity provider
  • Have direct contact with disabled people
  • Have the opportunity to introduce physical activity and sport to disabled people.

In line with this, the course provides first step training to support:

  • Support workers including those in day, community and faith centres
  • Parents
  • Carers and personal assistants
  • Healthcare professionals
  • Volunteers
  • Community based groups and organisations.

"The training has given me lots of new ideas and skills which will help me to give my clients a better understanding of what they can do and what they can achieve and hopefully encourage them to join new sporting activities."

Support worker

You will:

  • learn about practical tools to support inclusive delivery
  • explore creative ideas to support disabled people to access 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.

"This training is something that everyone who works with disabilities should go to."

"Brilliant use of my time, thank you!"
