NEW MASTER OF SCIENCE DEGREE IN ADAPTED PHYSICAL ACTIVITY LEADERSHIP Print E-mail

The MSc in Adapted Physical Activity Leadership (APAL) has been developed to respond to an increase in demand for highly skilled professionals who can take a leadership role in developing this emerging discipline in Europe. The taught level 9 programme has been developed in line with the European Standards in Adapted Physical Activity (2010) and builds on the strong health and leisure undergraduate honours degree programmes.

The overall aimof thisMasters degree is to develop an opportunity for professionals and graduates in the areas of health, education, care and leisure to develop their capacity to ensure universal access to physical activity programmes. This aimechoes the long held vision of the APA movement and is in line with the aim of the United Nations (UN) convention on the rights of persons with disabilities (2006) - ensuring the equal rights of persons with disabilities. Unfortunately in 2013 there are still great inequities in participation and the realisation of the vision of universal access to physical activity is dependent on the growth, development and support of APA across all UN states. There is therefore an imminent need for trained professionals to show leadership in overcoming remaining barriers and developing capacity to bring the shared aspirations of so many to fruition.
