New Swim England 'Foundations of Inclusivity' CPD officially launched

Swim England Qualifications is proud to launch the brand new Foundations of Inclusivity CPD programme.

This CPD is open to all members of the aquatics community, as well as those working outside the leisure sector.

Its primary aim is to upskill individuals across the aquatics community as part of a wider aim of Swim England to increase ethnic diversity throughout aquatic sports.

This engaging CPD will ensure that individuals obtain up-to-date knowledge and tools, meaning they are fully equipped to put inclusion into practice.

Genuine case studies have been used to illustrate how the social approach of inclusion has been applied successfully in a range of sports and environments.

Individuals who complete the Foundations of Inclusivity CPD, which is endorsed against CIMSPA’s Working Inclusively Professional Standard, will receive 3.5 CIMSPA points.

These can be used to evidence their continuing professional development in this area, as well as contributing towards the annual requirements of their CIMSPA membership.

For organisations that are interested in delivering this CPD please contact cpd@swimenglandqualifications.com or call 01509 640493.

‘Create opportunities’

Mike Hawkes, Swim England Inclusion and Health and Safety Partner, said: “It is great to see the Foundations of Inclusivity CPD being launched alongside National Inclusion Week.

“I’ve got no doubt that the model it provides along with the co-produced case studies will enable learners to address the barriers in their environments and create opportunities for underrepresented groups.”

Caroline Neal, qualifications development officer at Swim England, added: “We are delighted to be able to offer this CPD to members of the aquatics community and beyond.

“National Inclusion Week is the perfect platform to enable Swim England to share this training module which covers such a crucial area of education.”
