E-Learning Course Nominated for International Award

British Blind Sport are proud to announce that The Learning and Performance Institute has shortlisted our e-Learning course for the 2019 Learning Awards. The annual learning sector celebration recognises outstanding achievement, best practice and excellence in corporate learning and performance.

The e-Learning course, Coaching People with a Visual Impairment, was created in partnership with UK Coaching and part funded by Sport England. It raises awareness of the crucial role coaches’ play in helping people with visual impairments (VI) overcome barriers to participation in sport and physical activity, complementing UK Coaching’s ‘Person-centred’ principle of great coaching.

Packed full of helpful tips, practical solutions and vibrant videos, the 6 modules in this online course will increase instructor’s knowledge, assurance and skills enabling them to be able to confidently coach people with a visual impairment and create more opportunities for VI people to get active.

Coaching People with a Visual Impairment has been nominated for the Learning Technologies Award, which recognises the technologies that were built and invested in to enable screen reader capability, ensuring the resources are accessible for people living with sight loss.

The shortlisted entries will now be required to present their submissions to a panel of independent judges during judging week, hosted at RICOH UK in London later this month. The results will be announced at The Learning Awards ceremony at the prestigious Dorchester hotel in London’s Park Lane on Thursday 7th February 2019.
