EOSE and CPG gain EU support for modernising education and training to meet the changing skills needs of golf in Europe

The European Observatoire of Sport and Employment (EOSE) and the Confederation of Professional Golf (CPG) have joined forces with international organisations from seven countries and from different backgrounds in golf and education, to develop a new golf education project, and modernise golf education and training in Europe and beyond.

This three-year Erasmus+ Sport project, beginning in January 2021, will play a significant role in developing the skills of PGA members in golf through new, innovative modes of education and training.

The EDUGOLF project is a collaborative partnership between organisations, which include: EOSE, CPG and two CPG Member Countries – the PGA of Sweden and PGA of Belgium, three National Federations – Polish Golf Union, French Golf Federation, Royal Spanish Golf Federation, who will work in conjunction with their national PGAs, the European Disabled Golfer’s Association [EDGA] and two universities and higher education institutions – EOSE member University of Applied Sciences for Sport and Management from Germany and National University of Ukraine on Physical Education and Sport.

Aurelien Favre, Executive Director of EOSE, commented: “EOSE is delighted to be working again with the CPG and partners from the whole golf industry to provide project management and workforce development expertise to the EDUGOLF project”.

“This is an exciting project to modernise education and training and develop the skills of professionals in golf – themes that align closely with the mission of EOSE.”

Chief Executive of the CPG, the Technical Lead of the project, Ian Randell, said: “As we continue to see significant changes across society, so too grows the need for the structures and content of golf education and training to evolve and continue to be fit-for- purpose.”

“Making the game accessible and reaching out to more people will require significant changes in the golf industry – EDUGOLF plays a vital role in ensuring that the workforce for golf are equipped with the education, skills and knowledge to facilitate the needs of the game and industry, now and in the future.”
