HWB011 Disability Inclusion Training

Scottish Disability Sport, in conjunction with Home Country Disability Organisations, has developed a UK Disability Inclusion Training (UKDIT) course aimed at those interested in becoming involved in sport for people with a disability.

The workshop has been tailored to meet the needs of teachers and staff in an education setting and who work within a school environment and want further theoretical information about how to be inclusive in their delivery aligned to the Curriculum for Excellence. The 6 hour option includes practical sports hall based opportunities to apply the Sports Inclusion Model and the STEPS principles to a range of sports and games.
