Sport has been around for centuries, but the concept of using sport as a tool for development is a fairly recent phenomenon. However, it is now becoming an important part of a number of humanitarian and developmental projects worldwide. The Sports for Development (S4D) sector has been an extremely positive and exciting addition to the field of development as well as the sports industry.
This course has been designed to make it relevant to practitioners, government officials, policy makers, social workers, sports trainers and managers as well as researchers who have limited insight into S4D, but are interested in building their knowledge and capacity to integrate S4D approaches within their overall development frameworks.
In 2021-22, scholarships will be provided to a total of 30 participants across two cohorts for this online S4D course. The scholarship program will cover 90% of the total fee of the online S4D course, with selected participants having to contribute the remaining 10%. The first-course offering for 15 selected participants is scheduled to start in July 2021, with the second cohort to begin in November 2021.
