InstructAbility is the only project in the UK and worldwide that is focused on enabling disabled people to become part of the leisure and fitness sector workforce. InstructAbility was set up in 2011 to enable more disabled people to access training and employment opportunities and reduce the physical and attitudinal barriers they face and in turn make facilities more welcoming to disabled customers.
To maximize the learning from the program and reach as many people as possible, Aspire is producing a set of evidence-based guidelines for the whole sector, due to be published in 2019. These will support the increase in the number of disabled people, training providers and employers in the workforce. The guidelines are based on innovative academic research and will be of value to the global leisure sector.
