Convention

Coaches play a central role in providing sport experiences for
sportspeople of all ages and skill levels

To fulfil their role, coaches must have appropriate competence and
training, taking into account the target group(s) with whom they
are working

Coaches are expected to be as concerned with the well being of the
sportspeople as they are with optimising performance.

Coaches should respect the rights, dignity and worth of every
sports participant, and treat everyone equally, regardless of sex,
ethnic origin, religion or political conviction.

Coaches are expected to work in an open and co-operative manner
with all individuals responsible for the welfare and performance
development of the sportspeople.

Coaches should develop and maintain a high standard of training;
their action, whilst conducting training sessions, should reflect
scientific knowledge and current expertise.
Convention






Scientific principles should be applied in every level of coaches’ training.
Responsibilities and professional competence should gradually build up
from the initial levels of coaches’ qualification to the final ones.
All coaches should hold a coaching qualification that is recognised by the
national competent authority and the relevant federation.
The framework for the recognition of coaching
competence and qualifications as proposed by
the European Coaching Council is the European
recognised mechanism reference point for the
period 2008-11.
The establishment of a formal review
mechanism will be investigated to provide a
basis on which prior learning and current
competence can be recognised and where
coaching qualifications can be reviewed against
the ECC framework.
Consideration should be given to the establishment of a licensing system
that will have international recognition and currency.
ICCE Strategy
Global Framework for the recognition of
coaching competence and qualifications
(GFRCCQ)
 Global Network of coaches
 Coaching as a profession
Note: Key role of higher education and the
proposed establishment of a GlobalEuropean Coaching Office and a Coaching
Senate
