High-level athletes, skills and employability

High-level athletes, skills and employability

Only a small number of high-profile athletes manage to gain a considerable income from sport. In reality, a huge number of dedicated sportspeople make sacrifices to compete without gaining any financial rewards. These athletes often have to balance the needs of their sport with the requirement to continue working or studying (a dual career), which can prove a challenge.

Supporting athletes to pursue a dual career

For many athletes in Europe, combining a sporting career with work or education can be a challenge. The Networks of Knowledge project aimed to create better support structures to help athletes manage dual careers.
