The planned partnership aims to develop upon the work of the recently completed European Inclusive Physical Education (EIPET) project -LLP/LdV/TOI/2007/IRL - 502 EIPET. One of the major outcomes of the EIPET project was a resource pack that represented an off the shelf module and associated resources for inclusion into undergraduate PE teacher training programmes, available in hard copy, electronically and in online learning format. Suggested modifications for in-service delivery and primary school delivery were included. The module was launched in Dublin in October 2009 to an international audience. Since the launch interest in the project has remained high and a number of opportunities for further development have been muted among original partners and others. The planned partnership would enable full exploration of the dissemination, valorisation and impact of EIPET; peer reviewed journal article on EIPET, troubleshooting and refinement of resources based on experiences of users since the launch; definitive action on potential modifications of EIPET in order to broaden the scope of the resources; identify a plan for quality assuring the EIPET resources; expanding the geographical spread of EIPET dissemination activities; identification of funding opportunities to facilitate the sustainable of EIPET; identification of quality assurance mechanisms for EIPET resources; planning for future related projects into the fields of a) sport and active leisure including coaching; specifically, b) developing countries c) tailored packs for in-service and primary schools. In the case of sport and active leisure including coaching we will focus on a needs assessment for the professional preparation of people preparing to work in this sector.
