Education of young sportspersons: Final report

E-mail Print

This report is a study on the education of young sportspersons. We have focused our research on the educational and vocational support for elite athletes provided by the Member States of Europe and the role of sport in education.

The brief for the project describes the focus as:

The situation in Europe as regards the education of young sportsmen and sportswomen and their return to education and/or employment once their sporting careers have ended.

The team of researchers from the ISLP/PMP team has been supported by a group of expert advisors, drawn from organisations in the UK working in the area of sport and the education of young sportspersons. In undertaking this study we have carried out secondary research across all 25 European Union Member States to provide a comprehensive picture of the current situation in Europe. In addition, the UK, France, Germany and Poland have been selected for supportive primary research. The aim of the study is to identify best practice and to provide an evidence base for policy recommendations.
