Course Open Day: Chair-based Exercise

Today we’re holding another Open Day at the University of Birmingham for anyone interested in providing specialist, safe and effective seated exercise. We’re looking to expand our network of instructors as well as train health and leisure professionals nationwide to provide fun and effective exercise classes in leisure and community centres, Church halls and Care and Residential homes.

We’ve teamed up with the Centre for Healthy Ageing to establish ourselves as a training provider. Our course will give you the following specialist qualification – VTCT Level 2 Award in Delivering Chair-Based Exercise. It is an Ofqual accredited course, devised by Skills for Care, which sits on the Qualifications Credit Framework (QCF).

Our 4 day course includes the latest evidence-based research from experts in active ageing. During the course there is great emphasis on the practical delivery of safe seated exercise for older adults underpinned by knowledge of how to demonstrate and adapt these exercises effectively. You will show your understanding both through written assignments and practical demonstrations. There is no external examination although you will need to pass your practical on the final day in order to gain certification and insurance.

The course will help you to plan, prepare and deliver safe chair-based exercise sessions for older adults. You will also learn about the values and principles of adult social care, the effects of ageing, disability and inactivity. You will develop skills to encourage and engage older adults, improving their levels of physical activity and subsequent health benefits.
