The dual education of top sports talent is an enormous challenge within the field of education and sport, the individualized education approach and guidance. The goal of the Topsport Talentschool Tabor College is to build an EU network. We call it T.E.E.N., which is short for: (Topsport) Talent and Education European Network. The abbreviation reads ‘Teen’, as in teenager, the age we focus ourselves on within our T.E.E.N. activities.
By job shadowing, the Erasmus plus programs KA 101 (2018-2020) and KA 122 (2021-2023) gives Tabor College the possibility to visit the best European top sport talentschools and to invite them to participate in T.E.E.N.
The goal of T.E.E.N. is to share best practices. We focus ourselves on creating a network to exchange knowledge and experiences about flexible education in vocational schools connected to elite topsport talent programs of sport foundations.
At the moment, there are seven T.E.E.N. members within the EU:
On all the photos we took during visiting our members, you can see the symbol of T.E.E.N. The symbol is called ‘Bundled Collaboration', which is indispensable in the dual education triangle: Home - School - Sport.
To give you more insight in our activities, we will share two of our best practices with you. Click the link to download the PDF-file.
