IT Tralee receives UNESCO Chair in Inclusive Physical Education

IT Tralee is the first third level institution in the world to receive a UNESCO Chair in Inclusive Physical Education.

It received the endorsement for the role the IT Tralee plays internationally in the field of Adapted Physical Activity.

IT Tralee runs six honours degree programmes in the areas of Health & Leisure with Adapted Physical Activity, and will offer a Masters in Adapted Physical Activity Leadership from next year.

The Chair designation is an important development as the IT embarks on the building of The Centre for Universal Inclusive Sport Health and Leisure Education.
