“Training the Female Sport for All Leaders of Tomorrow” aims to equip and empower a new generation of young European and African women who are engaged in Sport for All with the necessary skills, knowledge, experiences and guidance to lead the global Sport for All Movement.
Through a comprehensive global mobility and mentoring scheme, the participants will strengthen their future employability and enhance their personal and professional development through the acquisition of new skills and knowledge gained through non-formal education and time spent in a foreign country.
This project is led by The Association for International Sport For All (TAFISA) and also includes ENSE, as well as the Slovenian Olympic Committee and the African Union Sports Council Region 5.
Through this scheme, mentoring trios comprised of one mentee from Africa, one mentee from Europe and one mentor (either from Africa or Europe) will be created. These trios will share knowledge and experiences, the mentees will work on a collaborative project, and each mentee will participate in three international, face-to-face mobility activities
As part of this project, ENSE is looking for two European mentees from within its network to take part in this mentorship scheme. Due to the difficulties created by the Covid-19 situation around the world, the application deadline has been extended to May 1, 2020. Application documents can be sent to info (a) sporteducation.eu.
Please note that mentees need to be affiliated with current ENSE member organisations to be eligible (see our members here). Individuals from other organisations will not be considered at this point.
Mentees are expected to fully comply with all project Guidelines and are asked to submit a completed Application Form and Letter of Support when applying.
The 16th ENSE Forum will take place in Guimarães, Portugal, in 2021.
Tempo Livre, a Portuguese grassroots sports organization and ENSE member, will host the Forum in Guimarães, a city also known as the “birthplace of Portugal”.
Initially founded by the local municipality, Tempo Livre is highly active in the fields of grassroots sports, sports promotion, as well as in the management of local sport facilities. Since 2018, Tempo Livre have also launched their very own sport studies department, the Centro de Estudos Do Desporto Guimarães.
The President of Tempo Livre, Amadeu Portilha, stressed that “it is an honor for Tempo Livre and its Sports Studies Center to have the opportunity to host a congress bringing together some of Europe's leading experts in the field of sport education. Today we are living in a time when the increase in physical inactivity is deeply worrisome because of the profound negative impact it will have on future generations. Sharing knowledge, projects, ideas and good practices, with emphasis on the education of teachers and coaches, is fundamental to the challenges facing today to counteract this trend, ”he said.
More details on the next Forum will be released in the coming months, including the forum theme and dates. In the meantime, if you are interested in more information about presenting or participating in the forum, you can reach out to us at email@example.com
