What we do? – Our Projects
INTERNATIONAL SPORT COACHING FRAMEWORK (ISCF) AND EUROPEAN SPORT
COACHING FRAMEWORK (ESCF)
Created in conjunction with the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF), and Leeds Beckett University (LBU), the ISCF represents a significant step toward understanding and establishing consensus on key coach education, development and employment areas. It is intended to serve as a common reference point for establishing a common language and set of principles about coaching and coach education that can be adapted and applied across all nations and sporting contexts. European members of ICCE analysed the current status and needs of coaching in Europe and developed a European Sport Coaching Framework to enhance coaches’ learning, mobility and employment. A suite of guidance and development tools to support European countries and sport federations build their coaching systems and qualifications also became available as a result.
Every two years the International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE) Global Coach Conference brings together coaches, coach educators, researchers, sport scientists, technical directors and sport administrators to address issues in coaching, to learn about new coaching research and examples of good practice, and to share experiences with the top coaching development experts in the world.
Building on the foundation provided by the publication of the ICCE International Coach Developer Framework (ICDF) in 2014, the ICCE Coach Developer Programme provides manuals, e-learning modules and courses in two key areas: Facilitation Skills for Coach Developers, and Supporting Coaches in Practice. Through its partnership with Nippon Sport Science University in the NSSU Coach Developer Academy, a global network of Coach Developers is now providing global leadership in this important area.
Global Coaches House (GCH) is a unique opportunity for coaches who aspire to be a future Olympic or Paralympic coach to participate in a professional development and networking program during a major Games. Global Coaches Houses have been held at the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Games and the Glasgow 2014 and Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
