Title Guide to Qualifications and Learning Outcomes for the Education of Golf Professionals in Europe
Product Type others
The main purpose of the Guide to Qualifications and Learning Outcomes for the Education of Golf Professionals in Europe is to act as an introductory and initial guidance document to help in the development of qualifications, learning outcomes and frameworks in the sector. It corresponds to Step 6 of the Lifelong Learning Strategy for the Sport and Active Leisure Sector (7 Steps model) and has been designed to be a useful tool kit in the development of a curriculum and framework.
The report is aimed primarily at the general reader, but is also aimed at Federations and Educational Institutions as a means of giving them practical advice and informing them of potential ways in which a curriculum can be developed to meet the needs of the industry within the particular context of the country, organisation and provider.
The report begins with a wide appreciation of European Policy and Initiatives, followed by some concrete explanations of the different steps to help in the understanding of the benefits of the Learning Outcomes process, the concrete development and writing of learning outcomes, before linking more explicitly with the Golf Stand Functional Map for Golf Professionals, and then providing examples of potential modules taken from these.
Two modules are then looked at in some detail, linked to learning outcomes, teaching methods and assessment strategies to provide the reader with an example of how they are developed and applied.
This report also contains some information obtained from a comparison sample made between existing PGA Training Programmes across Europe to highlight some similarities and differences in the structure, level, delivery and assessment methods.
Target group Different stakeholders from the Golf sector but also from outside the Sector are targeted and can benefit from the Guide to Qualifications and Learning Outcomes: Training Providers, National Qualification Authorities, Golf Courses as employers, employees from the Golf Sector and mainly Golf Professionals, National Golf Federations, National PGAs Associations, Social Partners, representatives of employees, students, citizens, public authorities and decision makers, the whole Sport Movement.
