Developing Skills & Competences Resulting in Employability through Sport
SCORES project focus within the field of Dual Careers of athletes is on employability and supporting services, and therefore the topic “Promote education in and through sport with special focus on skills development”
SCORES project is an exciting new initiative which connects academic experts, sport organisations’ volunteers and representatives and the business sector, from six EU countries – Spain, Italy, Finland, Bulgaria, Belgium and the Netherlands – with expertise and a continued interest in raising awareness and improving young athletes support in their life and career during and after sport.
The project focus within the field of Dual Careers (DC) of athletes is on employability and supporting services, and therefore the topic ‘Promote education in and through sport with special focus on skills development, as well support the implementation of the EU Guidelines on Dual Careers of Athletes’.
The objective of the project is to contribute towards sustaining European young athletes in their DC and increase their employment opportunities (before and during the retirement transition), providing them support to prepare for careers outside the sport field and promoting the recognition of informal education acquired during their sport career.
