CHINADA Publishes Working Guidance for a High-quality& High-standard Team of Clean Sport Educators


As one of the important means to achieve full-coverage, full-cycle, constant and systematic anti-doping education based on the values of “win clean medals”, anti-doping education lectures constitute an important part of anti-doping education activities in China. And Clean Sport Educators (CSEs) as implementers of the education lecture play a crucial role in guaranteeing the effect and quality of the education lecture.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, China Anti-Doping Agency (CHINADA) formulated the Working Guidance for National-level Clean Sport Educators to Conduct Anti-doping Education Lectures (“The Working Guidance”) in accordance with the Rules for the Implementation of Anti-doping Education and its operating guidelines while making full use of the online education resources to guide and conduct anti-doping education. The Working Guidance set out more concrete and definite requirements for the work responsibilities, process and standards of national level CSEs when conducting education lectures.

CHINADA has always been paying high attention to building a team of national-level CSEs, and launched the national- and provincial-level CSE team building program successively in 2015 and 2016. So far, CHINADA has trained and certified 139 national-level CSEs, and about 1,700 provincial/association-level CSEs, covering 31 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities as well as the sports system for the disabled in China.

Through the implementation of The Working Guidance, CHINADA aims to further strengthen the management of national-level CSEs, regulate their professional behavior, improve the overall quality, and create a high-quality & high-standard CSE team so as to build a long-term anti-doping governance system for “win clean medals”.
