Introduction to Sport for Development E-Learning Courses
The African Union Sport Council launched free online e-learning modules: Introduction to Sports for development (S4D) and safeguarding in sport and sport for development. The objective of the web-based trainings is to promote access to high-quality digital learning content, while spreading the S4D approach and raising awareness on safeguarding in sport and S4D. These courses will greatly benefit any facilitator conducting sports activities including e.g., teachers, social workers, coaches and any individual interested in sport for development and no prior knowledge of S4D is required.
The 60-minute-long Sport for Development Basics course explores topics that can be addressed through S4D, along with how to structure an S4D session and the impact S4D can have on individuals and the community. The 90-minute Safeguarding in Sport and Sport for Development course on the other hand addresses the meaning of safeguarding, the different types of harm, how to deal with safeguarding concerns, and the roles and responsibilities of S4D facilitators.
The courses are available in English and French and to access the courses, please create an account on the learning platform by following this https://www.atingi.org/ .
