The European Network of Sport Education (ENSE) is an international non-profit organisation and has been active in the field of sport education in Europe since 1989. 

ENSE works to create learning opportunities, skills, competences, and qualifications in all settings for people or organisations leading, developing and supporting sport activities. ENSE aims achieve this by working on pan-European projects, creating innovative educational materials, connecting organisations working in the field of sport education, and advocating for effective policies on the European level.

Members regularly cooperate in a number of projects and working groups, and ENSE supports members by disseminating and promoting their activities.
