Aligned with the realities of the sector, European policies and strategic initiatives, EOSE has recently developed a common Lifelong Learning Strategy for the Sport and Active Leisure sector.
The ultimate objective being to provide a mechanism which links the worlds of education and employment through the development of Occupational Standards and equips the workforce with the right skills through fit for purpose qualifications and training.
The key aims of the VSPORT+ project are to:
- Ensure a successful dissemination of the Lifelong Learning Strategy at the International, European, national, regional and local levels
- Encourage and support the transfer and implementation of the Strategy at all levels
- Stimulate changes within vocational education to ensure it is fit for purpose and aids employability and mobility.
The project’s website is under construction and will be available soon
The Kickoff Training Seminar for the new VSPORT+ project was held in Budapest on the 12 and 13 April 2012 and gathered the 12 National Ambassadors who are going to carry out a series of activities to reach the main national stakeholders to disseminate them information about the Lifelong Learning Strategy for Sport and to encourage/support them in its implementation.
The 12 Ambassadors involved in VSPORT+ project are from Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Finland, France, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Malta, Slovakia, Spain and UK.
The project, managed by the European Observatoire of Sport and Employment (EOSE), runs from November 2011 to March 2014 and is funded with the support from the European Commission.
EOSE, with the support of its network of National Ambassadors and two third country partners from Australia and New-Zealand, is delighted to have been given the opportunity to deliver such an ambitious project which has the potential to facilitate the changes the sector needs to become more organised and successful in taking its place as a sector of significance at the European level.
