The European Network of Sport Education (ENSE, formerly known as ENSSEE) is an international non-profit organisation and has been active in the field of sport education in Europe since 1989. The organisation focuses on projects aimed at developing and promoting the sector of sport and sport sciences at the European level, especially as they relate to physical education, coaching, management as well as health and physical activity.
As the first organisation of its kind, ENSE enjoys a strong reputation across the continent and is a leader in regards sport education and policy.
The active leisure sector, including the fitness and outdoor sectors, has intensively worked on its own skills agenda in recent years. Accordingly the Blueprint Project focuses on developing new skills for current and future workers, improving employability of young people, and supporting entrepreneurship and growth across the sector.
football3 for all
Focusing on the football3 methodology – an innovative tool to use football to generate social change – this project aims to further expand the reach of this method by creating a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) in order to provide free, location-independent learning opportunities for individuals and organisations.
The Social Entrepreneurship Training Program for Athletes (SENTA) project, aims to help athletes develop, fund, and implement projects related to social, cultural or environmental issues and transform them into valuable social and economic drivers
Working with schools and teachers, this project will target a major, current societal problem: The migrant and refugee crisis in Europe. The objective of the project is to help address these challenges and to develop innovative, evidence-based intercultural pedagogy in physical education and coaching.
ESSA-Sport will deliver the first Employment and Skills map of the sport and physical activity sector – a sector of huge economic and social significance where new businesses and jobs are being created and new skills are needed to respond to the labour market. As part of the project, ENSE will contribute its expertise as part of the Sport Expert Advisory Group.
Over the years, ENSE has been part of numerous projects aiming at the development and alignment of sport education, be it in higher education, the professional sphere or in the non-formal sector.
