Leeds Beckett University, the International Council for Coaching Excellence and all other partners of project CoachLearn are delighted to invite you to the closing conference of this Erasmus+ co-funded initiative.

Over the last 3 years, CoachLearn has conducted research and development activities around coach education and development systems and qualifications in Europe. The main aim of the project is to enhance coaches learning, employability and mobility in the European Union.

At the closing conference, the CoachLearn team will unveil the newly developed European Sport Coaching Framework (ESCF) published by Human Kinetics, and a series of application and development tools that accompany it.  The ESCF is the final published outcome of the project, and has been developed following considerable research reports undertaken by the project partners, and production of best practice guides (available in English, Dutch, German and Spanish).  The ESCF was subject to extensive consultation by coaching stakeholders from all over Europe.

CoachLearn Project Manager Sergio-Lara-Bercial says of the project: "CoachLearn has been a tremendous collaborative effort between all of those with a stake in coaching across Europe. The publication of the European Sport Coaching Framework marks a turning point in the quest to enhance coaches learning, employability and mobility".

The closing conference is taking place at Mercure Parkway Hotel in Leeds, UK on 31st May and 1st June.
