The aim of the training module is to make the sport communities of youth and school classes more inclusive towards marginalized and vulnerable youth by empowering and enabling couches, PE teachers to use education through sport approach to improve inclusion within the sport communities and school classes that they are responsible for.
The “SPORT.YOUTH.INCLUSION TOOLKIT” is one of the main tools developed in this project: it is an educational tool encompassing good practices for engaging young people in the promotion of inclusion through sport. The Toolkit reflects on the benefits and outcomes of non-formal education, where learning is happening by doing and experiencing
Move&Learn is a manual for education for democratic citizenship through sport. This manual aims to provide an approach through which learning projects can be complemented with sport and physical activities and sport for all communities can be complemented with a more conscious learning for life skills dimension. The manual is written for sport trainers who work with young people and would be open to integrate a stronger non-formal education approach in their sport activities. It is also for youth workers and trainers who are ready to integrate sport and physical activities in their community work and educational activities. The manual explains the approach of Education Through Sport (later referred to as ETS) in the context of both youth work and grassroots sport on the basis of non-formal education, experiential learning and active participation. The manual also provides 12 exercises that can be used in youth work, non-formal education as well as in sport groups. The exercises are described step-by step so that any educational practitioners can facilitate them within their groups.
It is a handbook for using sport to develop volunteering skills of young people. This handbook draws on the lessons learnt from the Volunteering in School Sport (V2S) project of the International School Sport Federation. It was designed to support school sport organisations working directly or indirectly with young volunteers in designing and reshaping policies, programs and activities to further develop volunteering in a school sport context. In the first part of this handbook, you will find some landmarks and definitions to help you develop your understanding of key concepts such as the values of sport, school sports, volunteering and youth participation. In the second part of the publication, you will learn more about Education through Sport and how to develop competencies that we deem useful in volunteering in school sport. Some examples of educational activities from the V2S project illustrate this part. We invite you to adapt them to your own context. At the end of every section in the first chapter, you will find a box including a few questions. They are to help you challenge your own views and practices.
It is supporting sport educators in creating and maintaining an inclusive sport community based on diversity of gender identities and sexual orientations. This training toolkit is designed to assist sport operators (including
educators and managers) in innovatively preventing and tackling anti-LGBTI hate crime and discrimination and their causes, by fostering capacity building and education. In the process of putting together this training toolkit, we drew on the research data conducted within the Outsport project as well as the collective experience of project partner organisations, with a view to enabling all types and sizes of sport organisations – from local clubs to national and international federations and agencies – to effectively tackle these forms of discrimination in a preventative way and to foster long-term LGBTI inclusion in sport. The Toolkit has three main target groups who will be addressed in different ways: coaches and PE Teachers will be addressed as Educators and sport managers will be referred to as Managers. In each section of the different chapters, these two main target groups will be addressed separately
with specific messages, questions and tasks. The Toolkit consists of 5 thematic sections, including a chapter presenting the main findings of the European research into the experiences of LGBTI people in sport; a chapter on specific empowering pedagogic approach with high potentials; a collection of concrete educational tools that support coaches and teachers in the creation of SOGI inclusive sport communities; and a collection of existing examples of non-discriminative
organisational best practices.
It is an adaptation of the Council of Europe’s Have your say Manual into sport. ENGSO Youth, as the only youth-led European-level organisation at the nexus of sport and young people, had a privilege to organise the International Activity ‘Have a Youth Say in Sport’ in November 2019. The Council of Europe supported the activity through the European Youth Foundation with the main objective of raising awareness of the ‘Have Your Say!’ manual among young leaders in the field of sport. Thirty-five young leaders were introduced to the ‘Have Your Say!’ manual, and through participatory workshop helped its adaptation to the sporting context. This Toolkit is a result of their collaborative work. The Toolkit includes some theoretical reflections on how sport can be a learning tool for active citizenship, democratic participation, and how it can contribute to more inclusive communities. It provides arguments about why the European Charter on the Participation of Young People is so relevant for the grassroots sport sector, and presents some good practices of using sport as a powerful tool for learning and inclusion initiated by young people (Young Delegates of ENGSO Youth). Furthermore, the authors of this Toolkit adapted some of the pedagogical activities of the ‘Have Your Say!’ manual so that they can be applied in the sport setting. These activities are primarily designed to be implemented with groups of young people aged 15-25 in sport context by sports coaches, physical education teachers, and general educators, too. In fact, it will be
useful to everyone who deem that sport and physical activities can aid the participation of young people in society.
