Handbook on skills development in sport available
The partners consortium of the Skills for You(th) through Sport (SK4YS) project proudly announces the completion and availability of a dedicated handbook on skills development in and through sport, aimed to raise awareness about the sport-based interventions and to provide practical advice for planning such initiatives.
The SK4YS project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, is a transnational initiative gathering various stakeholders with strong expertise and interest in skills development in and through sport. The initiative has been designed to raise awareness on soft skills and competencies gained through sport and to build the capacity of sport and youth organisations to implement sport-based youth development programmes. Additionally, the project aims to increase recognition of transferable skills that sport can develop for young people – especially those not in employment, education or training (NEETs).
The handbook is aimed mainly for representatives of youth and sport organisations, coaches, trainers and youth leaders on topics related to soft skills development through sport, the contribution of sport and physical activity to key competences and developing sport and employability programmes for disadvantaged young people.
SK4YS project is ran by the youth section of the European Non-Governmental Sport Organisation - ENGSO Youth, and other project partners - European Observatoire of Sport and Employment (EOSE), the Cyprus Youth Council, the European University Sports Association through its EUSA Institute, Oltalom Sport Association and the Budapest Association for International Sports (BAIS).
