Project Number UK/10/LLP-LdV/TOI-343
Product Occupational Descriptors for the Golf sector in EU
Title Occupational Descriptors for the Golf sector in EU
The Golf Stand project consortium identified through the Occupational Map four main occupational areas in the Golf sector which are:
1) Facilities Operation and Development
2) Golf Supplies
4) Participant Development.
These occupational areas headlined for more than 60 different related occupations in total but the consortium decided to select and prepare Occupational Descriptors for the following eight main occupations:
- ASSISTANT PROFESSIONAL
- TEACHING PROFESSIONAL
- HEAD PROFESSIONAL
- DIRECTOR OF GOLF
- GENERAL MANAGER
- GOLF FACILITY SALES & MARKETING MANAGER
- FOOD & BEVERAGE MANAGER
- GOLF COURSE MANAGER
Although the title for each occupation is commonly found in the Golf sector across Europe, the actual job description can vary from country to country.
The Occupational Descriptors were then drafted by the partnership of the project for each of the eight occupations and responded to the requirements of step 3 of the Lifelong Learning Strategy for Sport and Active Leisure (7 Step Model) which was the key methodological tool used in the Golf Stand project.
It consisted of describing key characteristics of each occupation by listing key tasks, skills and attributes for these main occupations as well as knowledge, qualifications and career routes. In other words, the Occupational Descriptors describe a standard that can be seen around Europe in particular job roles and can be used by employers and others in the industry to benchmark job descriptions. They are indicative of common skills and are not designed to be prescriptive. Employment in each country and indeed each employer in the sector may be different from the descriptors as each job will fit the specific needs of a country or employment context.
Target group Different stakeholders from the Golf sector but also from outside the Sector are targeted and can benefit from the Occupational Descriptors: Training Providers, Ministries, European Institutions, National Qualification Authorities, Golf Courses, employees from the Golf Sector, National Golf Federations, National PGAs Associations, Social Partners, representatives of employees, students, citizens, the whole Sport Movement.
