Product Type others
The report on Quality Assurance Strategies and Guidelines for Vocational Education and Training in Golf in Europe contains a number of desk research findings and good practices on the existing quality assurance standards and procedures. It corresponds to Step 7 of the Lifelong Learning Strategy for the Sport and Active Leisure Sector (7 Steps model).
The first part of the report presents the European Quality Assurance Reference Framework (EQARF) and the quality assurance methodology proposed by this Framework, and then highlights and reviews the existing good practices found in the current Vocational Education and Training (VET) system for golf professionals in Europe.
The aim of the work carried out through the project to produce this report was not to implement a new Quality Assurance process for Golf professionals but to explore all relevant Quality Assurance strategies that might be considered and implemented to improve the current VET system in the sector. The content of the report should be read as a source of information and guidance based on an extensive desk research carried out through different sectors in Europe. It contains also a series of concrete recommendations developed from the desk research and to be considered as a way forward for the sector.
Target group Different stakeholders from the Golf sector but also from outside the Sector are targeted and can benefit from the Quality Assurance Strategies and Guidelines for VET. The main target is the PGAs of Europe and National PGAs, but also Training Providers, National Qualification Authorities, Golf Courses, employees from the Golf Sector, National Golf Federations, Social Partners, public authorities and decision makers, and also the whole Sport Movement.
