In 1994, a group of experienced supervisors and supervision trainers founded EASC as a European association in Hanover. To develop quality in coaching and supervision as a supra-regional, European trade association was the objective from the beginning. The first name of the association was EAS – European Association for Supervision.

Since coaching became increasingly professionalized and quality requirements are similar in coaching and supervision, many members started offering coaching, too. So the association developed quality standards for coaching and training in coaching based on the existing quality standards for supervision.

In 2010, the association therefore renamed itself:
EASC – European Association for Supervision and Coaching.
