Sport has the power to bring about positive change in communities and society. For individuals, sport can enhance personal and social development, employability, health, and re-engagement in education. The twin themes of the CHANGE project were societal and human development through sport.
CHANGE was a project founded on the belief that sport has huge potential to change society and change people but that to do so it needs a workforce with the right skills and competences, supported by a fit-for-purpose programme of education, training and professional development.
CHANGE focussed on the emerging field within the sport sector known as “sport for development”.
The Lifelong Learning Strategy for Sport and Physical Activity (7 Step Model) provided the overall methodology which was implemented though the CHANGE project to deliver the expected intellectual outputs.
CHANGE brought together a unique partnership to explore skills issues in sport for development. The partnership was led by EOSE and included a national Sport Ministry, national and international sport for development charities, an umbrella body for grassroots sport and physical activity, national sport bodies, and universities.
