A new information offer on the subject of “Inclusive work in sport” is an important result of the project “Qualified for practice: Inclusion managers for non-profit sports” of the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB), which ends this year. The website is aimed both at people with disabilities who are looking for a job or general information on inclusive work in sport, as well as at employers from sport who also offer their vacancies to people Want to advertise disabilities. Questions are raised such as “As a person with a disability, should you state this in your application letter or not? What is allowed and recommended in the interview? ”On this page the typical requirements and questions are collected, linked to relevant pages and existing good offers, and specific information on the professional field of sport is presented. People with disabilities explain their experiences in short videos. Furthermore, the individual profiles of the sports inclusion managers show good examples of the personal situation and possible activities in sports organizations “With the aim of creating sustainable jobs for people with severe disabilities in non-profit sports. 22 positions were filled in various sports organizations nationwide with sports inclusion managers with disabilities in the past project period. The implementation took place in two project phases for two years each and was always characterized by the diversity. The age of the sports inclusion managers ranged from 25 to 59 years. The qualifications were just as diverse as the respective handicaps and personal strengths, including chemistry laboratory assistant, office worker, business studies or a graduate sports scientist. What they all had in common was the love of sport and the desire to implement more inclusion in and through sport. DOSB Vice President Prof. Dr. Gudrun Doll-Tepper is particularly pleased about this project “because we not only implement other inclusive sports offers in non-profit sports, but also want to achieve more participation by and for people with disabilities in all areas, including full-time and voluntary work”.
