EOSE and the partners in the SKILLS project are delighted to announce the publication of the “Compendium of selected good practice examples towards a skills and workforce for the sport and physical activity sector”.

The 13 good practice examples in this Compendium from 13 different countries cover a range of themes crucial to the development of the sport and physical activity sector, from gender equality, disability inclusion and dual career; to researching the labour market, legislation supporting the sector, and initiatives for coach education and sport management employability.

One thing that links the good practice case studies together is that they are about developing people – the large workforce of paid staff and volunteers in sport who are the sector’s greatest asset. New training, education programmes, employment standards and employability initiatives also feature strongly in this Compendium.
