The Second Consultation Draft of the European Sport Coaching Framework Has Been Released

The International Council for Coaching Excellence, the European Coaching Council and the rest of the CoachLearn project partners have released the second consultation draft of the European Sport Coaching Framework. 

CoachLearn is an Eramus+ co-funded project seeking to enhance sport coaches’ learning, mobility and employment through the development of a European Sport Coaching Framework (ESCF). The ESCF will act as a recognised reference point across the EU for the development and recognition of coach education programmes and coaching systems.

This newly-released version represents the second consultation draft of the ESCF. It will be available here for a one-month period between 7th March and 7th April. CoachLearn would like to kindly request your feedback and suggestions to improve the ESCF.

After this, the CoachLearn Project Group will proceed to finalise the ESCF for publication at the CoachLearn closing conference in Leeds (UK) 31st May-1st June 2017.

The final version will also contain a collection of illustrative case studies from across the EU in each chapter and be accompanied by a set of application and developmental tools such as a Coaching System Mapping Tool, Participant Development Model Builder, a Coaching Qualification Curriculum Builder, Qualification Mapping and Conversion Tool, and a Step-by-Step Guide to Recognised Prior Learning and Work-Based Experience.
