Call for Trainers
Physical education and sport is still often an arena where violent and war-like language and images abound be it in everyday communication or through the media, where discrimination and stereotypes are common. And yet, physical education and sport have a potential, readily recognised in many places for the promotion and development of values such as human rights, human dignity and cooperation as well as a constructive, respectful attitude to oneself and to others.
This training will focus on the contribution of physical education and extra-curricular sports to personal development and these transversal aims of education.
The main target is teacher trainers for physical education for all age groups in pre- and in-service teacher education as well as instructors or coaches who work in school environments in particular for extra-curricular sport activities. However, to a lesser extent also school heads, school psychologists, representatives from health related professions who have a role to play in curricular and extra-curricular activities related to sport.
