"Strengthening Coaching with the Objective to Raise Equality" – SCORE is an European project supported by the Erasmus+ Sport Programme, lead by by the European Non-Governmental Sports Organisation (ENGSO), which promotes equal opportunities, namely gender equality in coaching, and focuses on increasing the number of employed and volunteer female coaches at all levels of sport as well as enhancing knowledge on gender equality in coach education. The project is targeted at sports and coaching organizations at all levels, more specifically coaches, trainers, former athletes, volunteers and decision-makers in the field of coaching.
The first year of the project will be dedicated to the development of the toolkit and to the education for a mentors programme. The activities foreseen in order to realise this phase are the Kick off meeting, Steering Committee meetings and the Project team meeting.
Around 24 mentors will be educated to support potential female coaches in developing the mentees' professional and personal growth.
National training sessions will be organised in Croatia, Cyprus, Finland, Germany, Lithuania, Portugal, Sweden and UK between November 2015 and August 2016 to facilitate the implementation and dissemination of the toolkit as well as to educate the relevant stakeholders. The final conference in 2016 will focus on dissemination and raising awareness on the project’s outcomes.
SCORE Project specifically aims to develop an educational toolkit “awareness pack” aiming at increasing the number of female coaches and breaking the barriers for female coaching by innovative solutions. The toolkit will include tools both to sport organisations and coaches. In addition, the project develops an education programme for mentors, which will be organised for the representatives from project partner organisations. After the programme, the mentors will assist potential female coaches in their respective countries in developing the mentees' professional and personal growth.
