The course is open access and free of charge – and has been well received by a range of stakeholders, including policymakers and practitioners, academics and students, athletes and coaches – attracting actors both within and beyond sport. Education institutions, sports bodies and federations, sport for development (S4D) actors and mainstream humanitarian and development organisations have all used the course to improve and sustain their work.

The course is currently in English and will also be made available in French, Spanish and Arabic over the next year (and possibly in the other two UN languages Russian and Chinese at a later date) in order to bridge language divides and provide greater equity and access.
