Researchers at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) seek to understanding the Para coaching work force and would like to make contact.
As part of the pan-European, ParaCoach Erasmus+ project, researchers at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) seek to understanding the Para coaching work force (e.g. number of coaches, level of education and athletes coached) and best practices in disability sport coaching across Europe. Consequently, they would like to make contact with coaches and coach educators from across Europe.
Overall purpose of the ParaCoach project

This is an Erasmus+ project with partner organisations from across Europe. The partner organisations are Liverpool John Moores University (UK) the International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE); European Paralympic Committee (EPC); Dutch Olympic Committee*Dutch Sports Federation (NOC*NSF); Institute of Sport Poland (ISP); Hungarian Paralympic Committee (HPC).
