Golden Goal Plus - Integrating Sport Activities with Basic Skills & Communication Training

In this project, Golden Goal (2005-2008/coordinated by BEST) is being transferred into three different European societies: Germany, Portugal and Poland.

The main aims and objectives are:

  • to transfer, adapt and validate a curriculum and training materials for introducing the concept of Golden Goal in the target countries
  • to modify these contents by taking into account not only linguistic aspects, but also sociological and cultural aspects
  • to adapt the materials by adding didactic guidelines for VET teachers and trainers explaining and illustrating how to introduce these materials within the framework of existing teaching schemes; this is done with relation to the specific demands and needs of individual users, to specific learning cultures and the requirements of respective vocational training providers in the three countries concerned.

One of the highlights of Golden Goal Plus will be a European Multiplier Conference held in Portugal during the Football World Cup 2010.
