Proud to introduce the first EOSE book!

Proud to introduce the first EOSE book!

After a long period of anticipation, we are now delighted to be able to introduce the first ever EOSE book entitled “Sport: linking education, training and employment in Europe – an EOSE network perspective” and published in July 2014 by the Presses Universitaires de Louvain.
The book gathers a series of articles and contributions aiming to serve as a solid written groundwork that strengthens the foundations of EOSE work, challenges, activities and projects. Indeed, this collective book provides information about the creation and development of the organisation, a summary of the principle achievements and activities carried out by EOSE since 2002 but also the main challenges facing the sector in terms of Education and Employment. Special attention has also been given to the European tools and policies linked to the EOSE mission.

The goal of the book is to highlight the diversity of vision, culture and conception within the sport and active leisure sector across Europe. Indeed, it describes for example how the sector has grown and is developing, and it shows the main opportunities created by the European policies in the field of sport, skills development and qualification framework to improve the relationship between education and employment hence allowing the sector to fulfil its potential.


We are extremely proud to highlight that he book received the official support from three key stakeholders which are Mrs Androulla VASSILIOU, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, Mr Joachim James CALLEJA, Director CEDEFOP and Mrs Claudia BOKEL, Chair of the Athletes Commission and member of the Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee.
Our wish is for this book, which marks the special occasion of the 10 year anniversary of EOSE, to be used and referred to by all our national members, ambassadors, partners, and contributors.
