VOCASPORT was a project focusing on the relation between vocational training and employment in sports and across Europe.

In the increasingly complex, global and competitive European sport industry, efficient and well-structured educational training practices and programmes are a fundamental source for competitive advantage and the development of the sector. The vision of VOCASPORT was to understand the trends and the gaps of current vocational training practices in the sport sector in the 25 EU and candidate countries, to analyse their relations with broader national policies and especially to test the degree of implementation of the EU principles set in the “Copenhagen Declaration” at the national sectoral level.
The main objectives of the VOCASPORT project were to:

  • Provide an update on the state and size of the European Labour Market in sport and sport related sectors;
  • Report on the situation of Vocational Education and Training (VET) in sport and sport related sectors in the E.U. and E.U. candidates countries;
  • Identify possible European common trends, especially with reference to the implementation of the Copenhagen Declaration at the national level;
  • Evaluate the compatibility and impact of Vocational Education and Training on the Sport Labour Market and Job Creation at the national and European level;
  • Identify national or European wide gaps between education and training on one side and needs of the sector;
  • Formulate guidelines and applicable recommendations for the further improvement of Vocational Education and Training in the Sport Sector within a clear European Perspective.

 

Products and results developed through the project are as follow:

  • 25 National reports and a global executive summary including  detailed analysis and state of the art of the national systems of Vocational Education and Training in Sport;
  • Updated statistics on the sport labour market in 25 countries;
  • Overview of the national vocational training programmes and providers in Sport Vocational Education and Training;
  • A set of guidelines and recommendations debated with the various stakeholders;
  • A set of Web resources and databases on Vocational Education and Training in Sport;

A main European event (Paris, 28-29 May 2004) with the participation of more than 100 experts from all the countries involved in the project.
