We are pleased to share that the European Commission Expert Group on Skills and Human Resources has published guidelines regarding minimum requirements in skills and competencies for coaches.

The goal of this document, is to propose a common minimum set of competences for coaches in Europe. The guidelines are therefore suggesting improvements in the education/training modules and courses of coaches as well as outline core competences a coach should possess in order to be considered as such. This document is addressed predominantly to the coach education providers. In addition, it also targets directly or indirectly policy makers, public authorities, sport organisations and education institutions.

The guidelines can be downloaded here.
