IBSF partners with World Academy of Sport to develop the IBSF Academy

Etoy/Lausanne (IBSF/RWH) The International Bobsleigh & Skeleton Federation IBSF has formed a partnership with the World Academy of Sport (WAoS), a long-term partner of many International Federations, major organisations events across the international sports sector, with a main focus on education and training services.

WAoS will initially assist IBSF in developing a complete Learning & Development (L&D) framework in order to support all of its 80 member federations. The Censeo Platform will be used to roll out the L&D plan in 2023 through a dedicated learning environment, the IBSF Academy, and distribute content and certify a variety of stakeholders involved in bobsleigh and skeleton, including national federations, coaches, mechanics, and event organisers.

The partnership between WAoS and IBSF will help IBSF’s vision to develop the sports of bobsleigh and skeleton and strengthen its mission to encourage participation in those sports across the world.

Ivo Ferriani, President of the IBSF, says: “Developing bobsleigh and skeleton has always been a priority for IBSF. Education is key and it is now the right time to structure the learning within our sport to provide long-term opportunities for our stakeholders and create a sustainable pathway for our federation. We look forward to working with WAoS and implementing an effective learning plan, along with developing our workforce and stakeholders, certifying them, and sharing unique content with them through our own Academy.”

Chris Solly, CEO of WAoS, adds: “We are delighted to have formed this partnership with our colleagues and friends at IBSF and look forward to helping them achieve their vision for bobsleigh and skeleton. There is a lot of potential for IBSF in the near future, and I strongly believe that our collaboration will help them structure their learning and distribute quality content to everyone involved in the world of bobsleigh and skeleton.”
