Recognition and validation of skills for youth gained through sports


Education, as a lifelong process, enables the continuous development of a person’s capabilities as an individual and as a member of society, and can take different forms. Beside formal education, self-regulated learning, context-bound learning, lifelong learning, informal learning and non-formal learning became basic elements of education.


ENGSO Youth releases a new position paper, calling for the recognition and validation of skills for youth gained through sports.


ENGSO Youth has a long-lasting history working on the themes of employment and education of young people. Education and employability in and through sport are one of our main focuses, where we work to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities.


By doing so we focus on promoting sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for youth within the grassroots sport sector. This position paper revolves around the outcomes of two projects supported by the Erasmus+ on which ENGSO Youth, “Skills for You(th) through Sport (SK4YS)” and “Monitoring and Evaluation Manual for Sport-for-Employability Programmes (MONITOR)”.

With this position paper we want to ask the question: how do we assess, validate and recognize these competences that are gained by the young people through sports, so they can be presented within the labor market?
