SDS have created a FREE e-learning workshop called Introduction to Inclusive Practice for all partners working across physical activity and sport, leisure, education and health.

This entry-level module is designed for everyone but will be particularly useful to those who are new to inclusive teaching and coaching, those who would like to become inclusive teachers or coaches, or those who would like to gain confidence in teaching or coaching inclusively.

The module should take approximately 60 minutes to complete and can be completed in stages rather than all at once if you prefer.

There is no cost for this e-learning opportunity – all you need to do is register with us and you will then receive an email with a second registration link for the actual e-learning site. You can then enrol on the course and work through it at your own pace.

Six easy steps to access this training:

  1. Sign up with SDS using this link: You may already have registered with us for other events and courses, and if so you just need to log in using your existing account. You only need to register with SDS once.
  2. Click on Introduction to Inclusive Practice E-Module to take you to the Inclusive Practice selection page.
  3. Choose which governing body fits you best and click on the logo.
  4. Click Book as an Individual, then Add to Cart, complete the registration questions and click Complete Order. Wait for a confirmation email; this could take up to 10 minutes. If you don’t see it please check your junk mail.
