  • Inclusive Sport Taster Event 

    27th June 9:30 – 14:30 

    #thisstudentcan - inclusive sports courses and career opportunities in sport

    This event will explore some of the disability and inclusive sports courses on offer at the University of Worcester; for example, sports coaching and disability, adapted physical activity and applied sport and disability. These modules include many opportunities to both play and teach inclusive physical activity and sport. Part of the day will focus on how students develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of inclusive practice and disability sport during their chosen Batchelor of Science degree in order to ‘open doors’ to future employment opportunities.
