Learning is a continuous process, leading to adaptations. What 'good' looks like in anti-doping education is evolving. Especially with the new International Standard for education coming into force in 2021, the anti-doping education community needs to revise education strategy and initiatives like never before.
This is a place to share evidence-based interventions being implemented, monitored and evaluated by anti-doping organisations in line with the requirements of the
International Standard for education.

According to the International Standard for Education all signatories of the World Anti-Doping Code shall document their Education activities through an Education Plan. The plan includes an assessment of the current situation, the establishment of an Education Pool, objectives and related activities and monitoring procedures.
Annual evaluation of your education programme
According to the International Standard for Education all signatories of the World Anti-Doping Code shall evaluate their Education Program annually. The evaluation should inform the following year’s Education Plan.
Are there any partnerships in the academic field or with other research institutions to provide support for evaluation and research purposes? Please inform us about this as well!
According to the International Standard for Education Values-Based Education shall be incorporated into the education programme. Values-Based Education is delivering activities that emphasize the development of an individual’s personal values and principles. It builds the learner’s capacity to make decisions to behave ethically. Developing values-based education is relatively new to the anti-doping community.
sPECIFIC education tools
In the delivery of education according to the International Standard for Education, signatories are developing many practical tools like digital applications, videos and print material. Some of these tools could be emerging practices useful to inspire the wider anti-doping community.
programmes FOR SPECIFIC TARGET GROUPS
According to the International Standard for Education some specific target groups should also be considered as part of the planning process, like children and youth, teachers, university staff and students, sport administrators, commercial sponsors, media personnel and any other persons as deemed necessary by signatories of the World Anti-Doping Code.
mUTUAL RECOGNITION agreements / SOLUTIONS
According to the International Standard for Education signatories of the World Anti-Doping Code shall acknowledge the Education Programs carried out by other Signatories and may recognize the completion of such programs by learners of said program. Where recognition takes place, this should be clearly communicated to other relevant signatories and the education pool. This process should ease the burden on athletes and athlete support personnel and minimize duplication of education. It can also help signatories to prioritize and focus their efforts more effectively and to concentrate on under-served target groups.
any studies/evaluations not shared within the scientific domain
Most of the studies or evaluations executed by anti-doping organisations are not published within the scientific domain. Nevertheless, they could be of value for the scientists working in the social science research domain. Especially when multiple initiatives are collected and collated regarding any of the research topics identified in our 10-year research agenda for clean sport.

The Guidelines for Education is a third-level, non-mandatory document that supports the International Standard for Education. These Guidelines are for those in Anti-Doping Organizations who are responsible for developing and implementing an education program, as described in the ISE. Where the ISE gives a minimum of what to do, the Guidelines aim to help you understand how to do it, giving you examples and suggestions, and showing you how to go above and beyond where possible.
