EDUCTION OF SWIMMING COACHES AND VOLUNTEERS
EDCaV is a project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission which gathers 3 Partners from 2 countries, i.e. Croatia and Slovenia.
The education of swimming coaches and volunteers (within sport clubs and associations) to work with PWDs, aims to ensure quality and professional work, given that this is a very sensitive population.
Apart from working with people with disabilities who can swim, aim of the project is to also educate coaches and volunteers on techniques to teach the non-swimmers with disabilities how to swim.
Trainers who work with PWDs must have additional knowledge regarding the type of disability they encounter when working with PWDs.
Practical part of education will not be limited to one disability and will include persons with different type of disabilities (physical, mental, blind, deaf…) and will aim to involve persons of all age ranges.
Apart from the trainers, the project activities will also include volunteers who are necessary in order to carry out the training process, and they will also undergo the same training as the trainers.
