CHANGE project partners make good progress in Copenhagen

“Enhancing skills in sport for development”

 On the 26th and 27th of November 2019 the partners in the CHANGE project gathered in Copenhagen, Denmark for the second full partner meeting.

The CHANGE project, funded through the Erasmus+ Programme of the EU, will develop professional standards and education in the area of sport for development through implementing the innovative 7 Step Model for lifelong learning and workforce development.

All nine partners were represented at the meeting which was hosted by the International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA).

Day 1 began with a session let by Stephen Robson from Leeds Beckett University. Stephen led the group through a series of activities to ‎recap and confirm a common agreement on the context for the project and look at definitions of sport for development. All partners agreed sport for development relates to the intentional use of sport to bring about positive change.

Step 1 of the 7 Step Model is about research and the group agreed the research protocol for data collection including a full desk research and plan to interview a wide range of stakeholders in sport for development at the local, national, European and international level.

The final session of day ‎1 saw EOSE Skills Development Manager Geoff Carroll introduce the group to the planned methodology to be used in the project to define competence and develop occupational/ professional standards for the area of sport for development.

In the evening partners further developed the nice working atmosphere in the project and enjoyed a session of Petanque and dinner at Copenhagen’s Boulebar.

On day 2 Geoff further developed ideas of how to develop occupational standards through functional analysis and the various ‎uses and benefits of agreeing standards for the area of sport for development. Group activities included the development of a draft ‘Key Purpose’ for‎ sport for development as the starting point for a functional map of the sector.

Sessions on communication and administration concluded the meeting.

Partners will meet again in April 2020 after the completion of the research and data collection phase.
