#5 THE IMPORTANCE OF HUMAN RESOURCES!
Successful school- and sport sector cooperation requires transparent and reliable regulations, regarding human resource (e.g. minimum qualification of coaches and instructors involved) and systematic human resource development (e.g. education and training) within the sport sector.
Relevance – Why is this requirement important?

If organized sport wants to be a high qualified partner for schools and kindergartens, the employed coaches have to be well educated. The qualification of trainers is an essential prerequisite for high-quality interventions.
 

Challenges – What are the typical challenges related to this requirement?

It is difficult to get funding for systematic human resource development. This puts a strain on education and sustainable quality. Furthermoe, the necessity, to use volunteers which won’t always have high qualified competence levels, exists. But think about law - i.e. maybe you're not able to use volunteers as a coach or assistant when you work with coaches during school time. Another challenge is the constant change of volunteers which don’t know enough about the background of the program.

Strategies – What are potential measures or strategies you might consider to (better) fulfil this requirement?

A main strategy to tackle the challenges described is to organize regular education and training courses for your sport club coaches. For example, it's a wise strategy to set-up a quality badge system for sport clubs and their coaches. Build a good human resources strategy with education, rewards (appreciation culture) and relationship. That will lead to a positive athmosphere for volunteers, who will come back regulary to your activities.

Another strategy is to develop meetings to attract new volunteers and to make them aware of the background of the project. Ask for a child protection clearance/prove of ethical behaviour and set up a guideline for ethical behaviour of all employees.
