UK Coaching Launch NEW Online Course!
Keeping Deaf and Disabled Children Safe in Sport

Learn-by-doing in real-life, decision making challenges

Developed in partnership with the NSPCC's Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) the Keeping Deaf and Disabled Children Safe in Sport module, is a convenient way for you to learn how you can make sport inclusive for children with a condition or impairment - at a time to suit you.

Practice overcoming challenges faced by disabled children in sport.

For £13.99 (ex VAT) our new style of online learning offers you the opportunity to learn-by-doing, making online decisions based on real-life stories and scenarios of disabled children in sport, so that you can see the consequences of those decisions in a safe environment.

By putting you at the heart of the action, letting you practice your decision-making skills in a virtual environment and giving you the space to try again - as many times as you want - without fear of anyone looking over your shoulder, it will help you gain a deeper, longer-lasting understanding.

You'll also get access to a bank of tools, tips and resources that you can start using straight away.

After completing the module you will be able to download your certificate of completion.
