The Guide for implementation the sport inclusion in education sector


Chapter IX

Inclusion in the education sector should be considered at both compulsory education and higher education (university) level.

Compulsory Education

Compulsory education, up to the age of 18, has two main interventions:

  1. Physical Education Curriculum

The physical education curriculum should address national, European Union, European (OECD) and International (UN; UNESCO; UNICEF) instruments on students with special educational needs, without losing sight of the students’ profile by the end of compulsory schooling.

2. School Sports Program

The school sports program shall be guided by the European Model for Inclusion in Sport and shall take as reference what is established by the Fédération Sportive Éducative de l’Enseigment Catholique / International Catholic Schoolsport Federation (FISEC) and the International School Sport Federation (ISF).

The education sector should engage with the health sector, municipalities, sports clubs and federations.

3. Sports Program in Higher and University Education

University sports is aimed at students attending higher education (polytechnic and university) through both grassroots sports and high performance sports, the latter being designed to participate in the competitive framework of FISU – International University Sports Federation (Federation Internationale du Sport Universitaire).
