STARTING 11 boosts the implementation of dual career services for athletes in the EU.

Our upcoming European Dual Career Toolkit will assist institutions in sport, education and the labour market to transform the dual career concept into effective action.

The European Dual Career Toolkit aims at key actors of dual career support:
Sport
  • National Olympic Committees
  • Sport federations
  • Clubs
  • High performance centres
  • Sport academies
  • Player unions
  • Dual career organisations
Education
  • Sport schools
  • Universities
  • Further education institutes
  • Training institutes for sport coaches
Labour market
  • Job agencies
  • Public employers of athletes
  • Private employers of athletes

STARTING 11 stimulates national, regional and local dual career delivery in the EU. Our European Dual Career Toolkit will supply a broad set of self-applicable tools covering 3 main service areas of dual career support:

Manage helps build the political, theoretical and infrastructural know-how to implement and administrate dual career services as well as to efficiently communicate towards the most relevant dual career stakeholders.

Train helps prepare, sensitize and empower athletes by providing them with knowledge, inspiration and skills to successfully pursue their dual careers.

Counsel helps professionalize inter-personal counselling services to foster the coping, decision-making and planning ability of athletes in times of fundamental change and transition.
