Welcome to the IPC Academy

The IPC Academy is a partnership between the IPC and the World Academy of Sport and is the education division of the IPC. The Academy brings individuals together to improve educational standards of sport throughout the Paralympic Movement and ensures that executives, administrators and officials have an educational centre that is sensitive to their needs and in touch with trends and developments, providing world class programmes.

The IPC Academy has a focused team continually enhancing programmes to ensure they remain world leading and specific to the Paralympic family's needs.

The IPC Academy aims to develop competency-based courses and establish quality-assured training processes for Educators who will conduct these courses through the partnership of the WAoS and World Rugby. This Programme is offered to coaches, classifiers and technical officials to train them to become certified as IPC Academy Educators, to conduct technical courses on behalf of the IPC Sport.
