Competency framework for Sport Officials



Competency framework for Sport Officials

The 4th full partner meeting of the ONSIDE project to develop sport officials in Europe took place in Bucharest, Romania, on 26th and 27th of March 2019. The meeting was hosted by the Romanian Football Federation.

The ‎focus of day 1 of the meeting was to validate the Occupational Map and Occupational Descriptor for sport officiating in Europe. These documents describe the landscape of sport officiating and the key structures and organisations within it.

Day 2 saw the first steps towards developing a competence framework for sport officiating in Europe. The group drafted a “Key Purpose”, or working definition of sport officiating: “Enable participants to compete through the impartial application of rules/ laws within the spirit of the sport”.

The group also received an update on the formation of the International Federation for Sport Officials (IFSO) which has been established in The City of The Hague in the Netherlands. Three partners of the ONSIDE project are founding members of the federation.

Funded by the European Commission under Erasmus+, the next ONSIDE full partner meeting will be arranged in Malta on 17-18 of September 2019.
