Inclusion and Diversity Coaching
Coaching people from all backgrounds and with all abilities should be part and parcel of being a coach. Your ability to differentiate, to individualise your coaching, is what makes you a great coach.
Coaching people with different abilities and goals makes your job or role a whole lot more interesting as you are pushing yourself and your own abilities further. Ensuring that every participant, athlete or player that attends your session, irrespective of their level, receives the same levels of respect and support should be your responsibility as their coach. It is not as daunting as you think. Mostly it involves common courtesy, an open mind and not being afriad to ask the relevant people the relevant questions.
These pages will support you in developing your knowledge and skills to be able to push your ability to differentiate further and to be able to support EVERY participant you meet.
At sports coach UK we recognise the seven protected characteristics identified in the 2010 Equity Act but currently have identified three keys areas which will provide the greatest impact on participation, namely disability, gender (women and girls), and race and ethnicity. We are constantly striving to provide support to coaches and our sports partners around inclusion and diversity and signpost them to the most effective organisation for support. For any enquiries please contact Sarah Cohen by email at email@example.com.
