PASSPORT promotes and supports dual careers for athletes by setting up a transnational network of partners that will develop a platform for the training of athletes in the sport management, hence contributing for their employability.
The project aims to raise awareness of dual carrier for athletes, as athletes often face challenges to combine their sporting career with education.
Through the collaboration of a transnational partnership comprised of 6 partners covering 5 countries, the project will conceive and develop a training programme in Sports Management as a dual carrier program delivered by the two academic organizations integrated in the consortium of six partners and targeting 100 athletes.
Thus, the partnership brings together a range of key partners jointly working for the development of new educational and training modules for athletes in the field of sport management, which will also benefit with a new on-line platform. To ensure a real european dimension, PASSPORT has agreed a strategic partnership with three sport association, two academic institutions and one NGO trying to compare experience from East and West part of Europe.
