As 2018 is finishing, the Handball 4 Dual Careers project is facing the last phases to end all work that partners had been done so far and be ready to deliver major findings and conclusions. 

These past months had been very busy as the great number of activities happen mainly through the pilot programs of the Dual Career Support Service (DCSS) at the three handball clubs participating but also H4DC has been present in several events for explaining the progress and the development that has been occurring through the implementation and which impact are all stakeholders receiving thank to this ambitious  and challenging project: 

📚 H4DC ACADEMY - DCSS pilot program

The main work done during this last month in the project has happened at the three handball clubs that, by organizing different activities, workshops and presentations, are testing the DCSS model designed in the first stages of the project.
These activities are mainly organized to the different internal actors of the clubs: Sports talents, coaches, tutors and parents (especially in the bronze group). The clubs are paying more attention to these groups and are organizing a more set of activities and presentations in a wide range of topics to keep informing about the project and dual careers.
External stakeholders are also important in this program development and there are also being organized some activities for bringing them more closer to the clubs and generate more sensibility of their realities. These activities are known as "Player 2 Business" activities and their main intention is to gather internal and external stakeholder to share their experiences and realities.

Along with the implementation of the DCSS model, planned to last until April 2019, AUAS will take the last model monitoring and evaluation and data gathering, which analysis will lead to the final writing of the "Transferability plan". 


On 13th of Decembre, in Paris (France), it was held the fifth steering committee with the participation of all six partners involved with H4DC. This meeting allowed to share impressions and to keep track of all activities and work that has been done so far: The three handball clubs share their experience on the continued implementation of the support service and other partners AUAS and FESI, presented their work on their research and recommendations on how to address the dual careers to companies and business and how to add value to sports talents at the time to get internships or jobs. 

This meeting also was important because it was agreed how to proceed this last month of work and set the date for the final steering committee and the final conference where all results and conclusions will be share to the dual career community that this project is building. 


Explain the Dual Career topic and H4DC project and its objective to potential external stakeholders and influencers is key to achieve the established aspirations that the project sets and for developing new and successful Dual Career program in sports clubs. Disseminating and sharing the work done it is an important aspect of the project and in this pasts months, H4DC has the opportunity to participate in some international events:
