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.
