Australian College of Physical Literacy (ACPL)
The ACPL college is dedicated to helping build a healthier future. The college is currently assisting the following sectors.
Trip down Memory Lane Aged Care Program
Developed with key partners such as Dementia Australia and brought to life by carers, lifestyle coordinators, family and volunteers. Residents at home or in care facilities can enjoy wonderful memories of familiar streets locally and around the world, while enjoying the benefits of gentle physical exercise.
Sporting Coach and Parents Programs
Sport is in the very fabric of our society and research data is clear on the rising issues facing Australian children with regards to a decrease in regular physical activity. Increasing obesity levels compounded by a dramatic rise in screen time for example are contributing factors impacting on the health and well-being of children.
We believe coaches and parents within the sporting community have both a responsibility and an opportunity to make a significant difference. To support this, Litivity is working closely with national sporting bodies and universities in the development of a Physical Literacy approach for coaches, community and parents. We believe this will assist in engaging children in physical activity and understand the benefits of being active for life.
The following areas are of key interest and investment for the organisation and one where collaboration is the critical factor. The activities within this portfolio will provide valuable evidence and understanding in the development of impactful programs to support educators, parents and the community to understand the importance of physically literacy and child development. Our research collaboration with the University of Canberra and Deakin University is a unique opportunity to design, implement and evaluate in a randomised control trial a full curriculum, competency development and meaningful content to support the physical literacy journey of young children.
Aged Care Programs
With the population over 70 set to double in the next 40 years we have a core focus on engaging and supporting the senior populations with physical activity. The benefits of being physically active in minimising the risk of falls and social isolation are significant. Through our partnerships, we will work closely with aged care facilities and support the implementation of impactful activity programs through innovative staff training, evidence-based content and proven physical activity programs.
In accordance with the Australian Government Early Years Learning Framework and in recognising the powerful and important learning environment of early learning centres, the AEL project aims to develop a best practice physical literacy approach (for toddlers to age 5 years) and investigate its effectiveness. Physical literacy is the integration of physical, emotional and social capabilities that help us live active, healthy and fulfilling lifestyles. This project will investigate: 1) strategies to develop physical literacy capabilities in young children in early learning centres, and: 2) how to support child care educators and parents to develop physically literate children.
