Project summary

The objective of the MONITOR project is to develop a user-friendly manual that will help sports-based organisations to increase the level of employability of the young people they work with. The manual will enable these organisations to work in a more efficient and effective way for delivering their programmes. It will help them to design and organise sport-for-employability programmes more systematically and will provide them with a clear understanding on how to measure the outcomes and impact. As such, it will result in providing optimal opportunities for skill development for young people enabling them to look and find sustained employment, to continue further education and/or to gain accredited qualification. During the project, the usability of the manual will be tested in 2 pilot cases. The project fits well with the Erasmus+ topic to promote education in and through sport with a special focus on skills development.
