Skills foresight, review of qualifications in use, and the development of international qualifications are only three of a range of activities undertaken by Blueprint’s project consortium. The Erasmus+ funded project is in its second year and up to full speed. Seven organisations supported by two external experts gathered in Leeds, UK to present and discuss first results of ongoing research and surveys. Fellow ENSE member, the International Council on Coaching Excellence, hosted the meeting on March 12-13, 2019 and provided the participants with a stunning meeting location in the Emerald Headingley Stadium.

Launched in 2018, the Blueprint project is a three-year project and aims at developing a sector skills strategy for the Active Leisure sector, which combines the fitness and outdoor sectors. During the first phase of the project, the consortium aims at creating the evidence base to identify skills gaps followed by a carefully designed plan and implementation of activities. Ultimately, this will allow to deliver improved, increasingly relevant qualifications that are recognized on a European-wide basis.

The partners will meet again in June 2019 in Brussels for a Technical Expert Group meeting, and a full partner meeting will take place in September 2019. In the meantime, you can find out more on the official project website or by following ENSE on Facebook.

Every two years, ENSE member the International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE) hosts the Global Coach Conference.

This conference brings together coaches, coach educators, researchers, sport scientists, technical directors and sport administrators to address issues in coaching, to learn about new coaching research, and to share experiences with the top coaching development experts in the world. From 30th October to 1st November 2019 the ICCE Global Coach Conference will be held in Tokyo, Japan organised by Japan Sport Council and ICCE.

Mixing research and practice, both academics and coaches are invited to submit abstracts for the conference. 

Researchers are invited to submit abstracts for oral and/or poster presentations that address issues related to coaching practice and coach education research. Abstracts will be blind, peer reviewed by an adjudication committee and selected participants will be invited to present in either an oral or poster format. Topics should focus on effective coaching, coach education, coach development and good practice. Early career researchers are also welcome. Critical reviews of the literature as well as data-driven research will be considered.

Coaching practitioners are invited to submit summaries for oral and/or poster presentations that address issues related to “best practice” in coaching, coach education and coach development. Summaries will be reviewed and evaluated by the organising committee and selected participants will be invited to present in either an oral or poster format. Topics should focus on effective coaching, coach education, coach development and good practice. 

Abstracts are due by February 28, 2019. To submit or obtain more information on the conference, visit www.icce-2019.com
