New Leonardo Project: European Occupational Standards for Golf Project (GOLF STAND)

We are really pleased to inform you that a new Leonardo da Vinci project led by SkillsActive, PGAs of Europe and EOSE has been accepted to develop Occupational Standards for the Golf Industry and will be funded by ECOTEC for the next 2 years (from 01 October 2010 until 30 September 2012).

Golf is unique amongst Sport and Active Leisure in the size and diversity of its labour market. There are many golf qualifications, some recognised in national qualification systems and others purely sector-based. New golf markets have emerged in recent years and there exists a gap at EU level between the competencies required by golf employers and the learning outcomes acquired by graduates and employees through education training.

The “European Occupational Standards for Golf” (GOLF STAND) project objectives the development of industry-led occupational standards to describe and specify the standards of performance that people are expected to achieve their work and the knowledge and skills they need to perform effectively. In other words, those innovative standards will be produced to define the competences, skills and knowledge needed for the jobs of the sector. The end target will be to ensure the development of a competent workforce with the right skills and to improve the relationship between education and employment.

The Consortium for that project is composed of 17 organisations gathering a mix of key stakeholders of the sector from 10 different EU countries, such as training providers, employers’ organisations, European networks and Public Authorities.
