The European Network of Sport Science, Education and Employment (ENSSEE) and the International Council for Coach Education (ICCE) announce their joint 2011 event with the theme “Innovation and Practice”. The event will be held in the refurbished facilities at the world renowned INSEP in Paris.
The Forum with its subtitle “A Platform for Sport Education and Employment in Europe” will focus on innovation, best practice, and latest developments within education, employment, and training in the European Sport Sector. Furthermore, it will provide a platform for analysis of emerging trends, needs, and issues in the areas of coaching, fitness, physical education, and sport management following the publication of the EU Lisbon Treaty and the White Paper on sport.
Besides, the joint event will also incorporate the ICCE Global Coach Conference. The Global Conference brings together coaches and coach educators, researchers and sport scientists, technical directors and sport administrators to address issues in coaching, to learn about new research in coaching, and to share experiences with the top coaching experts worldwide. Beyond, a report on the progress in developing a global framework for the recognition of coaching competence and qualifications will be presented. Also, the ICCE will consider a number of important proposals on the future direction of the organisation, including the proposed adoption of a new name - the International Council for Sport Coaching.
A “call for papers” will be posted on the websites of INSEP, ENSSEE, and ICCE in February 2011.
