World Para Athletics in cooperation with its education partners, IPC Academy and World Academy of Sport (WAoS), is committed to the continued learning of all parties within the Paralympic Movement. With the number of athletes and competition opportunities continuing to rise within Para Athletics, we have identified the need for increased learning support in classification, technical officiating, and coaching.

The World Para Athletics document “World Para Athletics pathways and education programmes 2017-2020” has all the relevant information on our available education programmes. You can find the document on the left hand side of this page. From this document you will be able to identify pathways, participant profiles, the requirements for attending any face to face programme and the learning outcomes that you should expect.

Hosting programmes

World Para Athletics welcomes initiatives from National Paralympic Committees, National Federations and Local Organising Committees to host education programmes. If you are interested in hosting World Para Athletics education programmes please use the documents provided in the download section on the left hand side for guidance.


World Para Athletics will continue to inform NPCs of all upcoming education programmes via this page and by email. If you have any questions regarding World Para Athletics education programmes, please contact IPC Summer Sports Education Manager, Jana Hasenberg at jana.hasenberg@paralympic.org or +49 228 2097-167.
