European desk research for good practices on the recognition of competences gained through sports
The European Observatory of Sport and Employment aims to launch a long-term reflection and action plan towards the recognition of non-formal and informal learning in the sport and active leisure sector: they believe it is necessary to develop a competent workforce for the sector that extends beyond formal education to learning acquired in non-formal or informal ways. Sports gather the highest number of volunteers and the skills of this unpaid workforce are crucial if the sector is willing to deliver its full potential. There is a clear lack of recognition of the experiences, the value and the competences acquired by volunteers. Participate in EOSE’s survey to identify adapted processes and methodologies that will allow the latter to be recognised by employers, formal education and civil society in general.
