ESSA-Sport: “European Sector Skills Alliance for Sport and Physical Activity”

  • Promoter: EOSE
  • Duration: 36 months (from 01st November 2016 until 31th October 2019)
  • Partnership: 24 official partners (19 national partners and 5 European networks) representing 19 countries
  • Scope: Sport and Active Leisure sector

The European Sector Skills Alliance for Sport and Physical Activity (ESSA-Sport) which concluded in October 2019 with the first ever European Sport Skills Summit in Helsinki (FI) was certainly the most ambitious collaborative project led by EOSE.

This 3-year initiative, co-funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ programme (KA2) provided a unique opportunity to engage the whole sport and physical activity sector at both the European and national level.

28 National Reports and a European Report have been developed through the project to create a knowledge base and plan for action within the sector on the key issues of skills and workforce development which are central to helping the sector grow, to equip those working or volunteering with the right skills and to enable the sector to fulfil its potential as a social, health and economic driver.

Complete project outcomes can be listed as follows:


> 28 National Reports* have been produced through the project gathering results from research activities (such as the statistics collated at the national level but also the national results of the first Employer Skills Survey for the Sport and Physical Activity Sector) and consultations led by national coordinators

The aims of the National Reports are:

  • To describe sport and education systems in the country
  • To propose concrete conclusions and recommendations/priority actions for implementation at the national level


> The European Report has been developed by taking into consideration contributions from National Coordinators, inputs from consultation and results from the research activities. It presents the main findings collated and analysed through the ESSA-Sport project at the European level.

The aims of the European Report are:

  • To describe sport and education systems across the European Union
  • To present new knowledge gathered for the sector in terms of employment and skills
  • To propose concrete conclusions and recommendations/priority actions for implementation at the European level


> To summarise the huge amount of data collated at both European and national levels, Fact Sheets have been produced to highlight the findings and new knowledge bring in the sector by the consortium:



*Please note that 9 National Reports (Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Luxembourg, Romania, Slovakia & Slovenia) don’t present detailed action plans as there were no national coordinator.
