First initiatives selected for MOVE Quality and MOVE Transfer


ISCA’s most recent initiatives, MOVE Quality and MOVE Transfer, are now under way with 24 sport and physical activity initiatives for hard-to-reach populations across Europe chosen to take part in the quality building and transfer processes in 2014/2015. A total of 18 organisations spanning from Denmark to the north, Ireland to the west, Bulgaria to the East and Cyprus and Malta to the south will strive towards receiving a Quality Mark for their initiatives, and 8 organisations will start working on upscaling and transferring their initiatives to new settings in their countries.

MOVE Quality

ISCA believes that great quality initiatives which inspire more people to be physically active should be rewarded. MOVE Quality identified 18 initiatives to go through a process that will build the capacity of the organisation and its specific initiative for hard-to-reach populations. MOVE Quality is a 12-month process consisting of a series of development and evaluation phases culminating in the Quality Mark.

The following initiatives, led by the corresponding organisations, have been selected to go through the MOVE Quality process in 2014/2015:

  • Beyond languages, transborder relations, CORSCPM, France

MOVE Transfer (national)

ISCA identified 8 physical activity initiatives for hard-to-reach populations that have run successfully in one setting and can be transferred to a new setting in the same country (another organisation, another community) via the MOVE Transfer process. MOVE Transfer national is a 10-month process consisting of extensive consultation on and development of an initiative, leading to the transfer or scale-up of the initiative within a national context. It will be a structured process of learning, developed for individual organisation and its initiative. As such the good example provides a tangible basis for learning that is based on problems and solutions and on smart and sustainable growth.
