Strengthening Coaching with the Objective to Raise Equality
Start date: Jan 1, 2015,
End date: Dec 31, 2016
SCORE, the “Strengthening Coaching with the Objective to Raise Equality” is a project of the European Non-Governmental Sports Organisation (ENGSO) with the partnership of coaching associations from the UK and Finland, national sports umbrella organisations from Croatia, Cyprus, Germany, Lithuania, Portugal and Sweden, and European and international organisations, such as the International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE), the European Observatoire of Sport and Employment (EOSE), Sport and Citizenship and European University Sports Association.The project promotes equal opportunities, namely gender equality in coaching by focusing on increasing the number of employed and volunteer female coaches at all levels of sport as well as enhancing knowledge on gender equality in coach education. This way, it has a strong link with EU policy documents, such as the Proposal for Strategic Actions on Gender Equality in Sport 2014-2020 and Council Conclusions on Gender Equality in Sport (2014).ENGSO and its partners specifically aim to develop a toolkit “awareness pack” with different tools targeted both to sports organisations and coaches to increase gender equality in coaching. In addition, the activities of the project include the development of an education for mentors, to which suitable persons will participate from partner organisations. Implementation will also take place in the form of national training sessions, where the “awareness pack” will be introduced.In the project, a project management method will be used, in which activities are divided into work packages based on different tasks. This allows quality and efficiency in term of time and budget. Based on this fact, ENGSO will be responsible for the management, monitoring, training sessions, dissemination and communication, Sport Coach UK for the toolkit, the Finnish Coaches Association for the education for mentors, ICCE for sustainability and EOSE for evaluation.
