The Consortium has been appointed by the Directorate-General Employment and Social Affairs to carry out a feasibility study on setting up a sector council on skills and employment for the sport and active leisure sector in the EU. The work has been awarded to the Consortium and will be carried out over the next 12 months, finishing in December 2014.

The Feasibility Study aims:

  • To explore the potential for the creation of an ESSC that could support the development of the Sector, and especially its workforce, at both a national and European level.
  • To launch a mapping and feasibility exploratory phase to assess the value added and willingness of creating a EU Sector Skills Council for the Sport and Active Leisure sector.

 

>> As part of the European Feasibility Study, the consortium has developped an online questionnaire to gather your view and opinions. Your responses and support in spreading the news matter as the results obtained from this questionnaire will provide key evidence to assess if there is sufficient demand and need to progress in this direction, and to identify if there is the capacity to ensure the successful establishment of such a mechanism for the sector. The questionnaire is available in English, French, German and Spanish. <<

 

Note:  The concept of European Sector Skills Councils (also named European Sector Council on Employment and Skills) has been promoted by the European Commission with a view to acquiring a deeper understanding of skill needs at sectoral level. The Commission supports the creation of European Sector Skills Councils which have the main objectives to propose a mechanism to tackle the sector’s workforce challenges, to develop a clear picture of the size and skills of the workforce in the sector through consistent Labour Market Information and to support a dialogue between education and employment at a national and European level.
