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

iCoachKids Literature Review now available in Polish

We are delighted to announce that the iCoachKids Literature Review is now available in Polish.

This literature review is a central piece of iCK. It has provided the necessary evidence to aid the development of a European Coaching Children Curriculum to guide those developing training opportunities for coaches of children and young people in the European Union and beyond. The literature review and the ECCC also informed the development of three Massive Open Online Courses during 2018 and 2019, which were the final outputs of the project.

The Polish translation brings the iCK Literature Review to an even wider audience, adding to the translations published in Arabic, Spanish, Lithuanian, Hungarian, French and Dutch - available here.
