ESSA-Sport is derived from the full title: “European Sector Skills Alliance for sport and physical activity” and is meant to analyse the labour market and improve the supply of skills to the sector

Funded by the European Commission under Erasmus+, the ESSA-Sport project will last 36 months starting from 1st November 2016 until 31st October 2019.

The scope of the project is meant to encompass the whole sport and physical activity sector as defined by the Council of Europe in 2001

“All forms of physical activity which, through casual or organised participation, aim at expressing or improving physical fitness and mental well-being, forming social relationships or obtaining results in competition at all levels.”

The need for an ESSA-Sport was demonstrated in a recent European Feasibility Study undertaken in 2014 by EASE, UNI-Europa and EOSE and funded by the Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities under the Sector Skills Council initiative.

Funded by the European Commission under Erasmus+, the ESSA-Sport project will last 36 months starting from 1st November 2016 until 31st October 2019.

ESSA-Sport strives to deliver the first Europe-wide Employment and Skills map for the whole sport and physical activity sector – a sector of huge economic and social significance where new businesses and jobs are being created and new skills are needed to match the expectation from the labour market.

Funded by the European Commission under Erasmus+, the ESSA-Sport project will last 36 months starting from 1st November 2016 until 31st October 2019.

Coordinated by EOSE with the support of a unique partnership of 18 national organisations and 5 European Associations from 18 different countries, ESSA-Sport engages for the first time the whole sport and physical activity sector at both the EU and national level

Funded by the European Commission under Erasmus+, the ESSA-Sport project will last 36 months starting from 1st November 2016 until 31st October 2019.

ESSA-Sport is a unique opportunity to undertake the first analysis of labour market and skills needs and to create the conditions for change.

To be successful we encourage all interested stakeholders from the sector to get engaged and support the initiative (e.g. employers, voluntary organisations, federations, clubs, NOCs).
