Free Massive Open Online Courses for Coaches of Children
iCoachKids centre-piece is the development of a series of three Massive Open Online Courses or MOOCs to support and guarantee access to high quality coach education to all coaches around the EU and beyond.
The contents of the MOOCs will be based on the European Coaching Children Curriculum (ECCC) also developed as an output of iCK.
The MOOCs are intended as an accessible yet comprehensive resource for coaches and coach developers. Due to the Open Licence, coaches will be able to sign up for the MOOCs individually or as part of a course edition run by a specific organisation they are part of.
Coach education institutes, universities, federations and clubs will be encouraged to use the MOOCs in full or partially as part of their coach development offer.
Coaches and coach developers will also be able to freely access the MOOC Student Learning Guides to use them as they see fit.
The first MOOC is projected for the summer of 2018 with the last two following in 2019.
If you have any suggestions or comments about the MOOCs please contact project leader Sergio Lara-Bercial firstname.lastname@example.org
Calling All Youth Coaches and Coach Developers – iCoachKids has released the draft European Coaching Children Curriculum and we need your feedback towards the development of the complete and final version to be launched at the first iCoachKids Conference in Budapest 3rd November 2017. The European Coaching Children Curriculum (ECCC) aims to provide guidance for those developing coach education opportunities for children and youth sport coaches. It highlights the key functional areas and tasks of the children and youth coach (CYC), the relevant competences required to fulfil the role, and signposts coach developers to the most up-to-date knowledge basis and underpinning theories.
