iCoachKids: Innovative Education & Training for a Specialist Children & Youth Coaching Workforce.

European Coaching Children Curriculum

One of iCK’s objectives is the development of a European Coaching Children Curriculum (ECCC).

The purpose of this curriculum is to provide a reference point for all those involved in children’s coaches’ education and development.

Whether you are creating a short apprentice coach qualification, a two-hour continuous professional development module or writing up a full three-year bachelor’s degree, the ECCC should provide a clear menu of options for what content to put on your learning opportunity and how to deliver it.

The ECCC will be developed through consultation with coaches and researchers in all areas related to youth sport. A first draft will be launched for consultation at the first iCK Conference in the fall of 2017 in Budapest (Hungary). The final version will be released shortly after.

The ECCC will also be used to inform the development of the three Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) that will be the centre-piece of iCK.

We will keep you posted about how the ECCC develops.
