Sport Trainers Squared

Τhe project

The Sport Trainers Squared project will focus on:

  1. Identifying methods and practices that can be used to prepare migrants to become sports trainers, transforming them into a training format
  2. Identifying the existing knowledge of sports coaches (belonging to “team sports”) in order to train migrants, elaborating an online course based on their needs
  3. Empowering disadvantaged migrants and preparing them to become Sports Instructors through Education Through Sport (ETS) methodology.

The above-mentioned goals will be achieved through:

  • A cross-country research in order to identify the needs of the target groups: migrants and sport trainers
  • An educational curriculum for sport coaches and educators belonging to “team sports” who are interested in working with migrants in each partner country
  • An online course that will give the chance of completing the training and receiving a certification to other sport coaches as well
  • Empowerment activities implemented by the trained sport coaches with local migrants, summed up in a training format, which will also validate the adequacy of the training.

During its 30-month lifetime, STS will directly and indirectly positively impact  at least:

At least


sport trainers who work with migrants testing the educational curriculum

At least


migrants interested in becoming sport instructors testing the training format

At least


participants at the national dissemination events
