International Benchmarks on Physical Education

The International benchmarks for physical education were developed by members of ICSSPE’s International Committee of Sport Pedagogy, following intensive discussion and extensive consultation, during 2010-2012.  Input and feedback were received from countries in all continents and from countries with varying degrees of wealth, infrastructure and school systems.  The benchmarks are informed by ICSSPE’s International Position Statement on Physical Education (see Appendix I), which has been endorsed by UNESCO (CIGEPS), UNOSDP, IOC and IPC.
