SAVE: Successful piloting trainings of the SAVE curriculum. New tools for sport coaches of children!
During the SAVE project, the consortium carried out an important curriculum for trainers and coaches. In fact, the results produced by the research implemented in the project’s countries, led to the creation of a tailor-made course for the SAVE target group. Now, coaches trained with the SAVE curriculum are better equipped to fight violence and exclusion during sport activities amongst children.
In this regard, the fourth meeting of the project SAVE – Sport Against Violence and Exclusion, took place in Graz, Austria the 13th and 14th November 2019.
During the meeting, partners updated themselves presenting the results of the piloting phases of the SAVE curriculum conducted in Lithuania, Croatia, Serbia, Spain, Austria and Italy. Coaches and trainers across Europe have been trained with SAVE methodologies and they now have better tools helpful in dealing with exclusion or violence (both physical and psychological) amongst children in sport.
The 30 month project now enters into the final stages and the consortium will now proceed in the creation of the Training KIT, the main product of the project. The KIT will be developed after conducting thorough research, designing the curriculum (by which the piloting training has been conducted), the assessment of training and incorporating all these elements in the adaptation activity.
During the meeting, the partnership agreed on the future development of the project, divided tasks amongst members and set deadlines. CESIE will continue in leading the dissemination efforts of the projects.
