This programme is for athletes who are keen to develop and expand their career skills.
Playing sport at an elite level is a great career, but it doesn't last forever. This programme helps players learn more about themselves, their sport, and their long-term ambitions. It involves identifying and reflecting on successful attitudes, behaviours and values, and making a plan for sporting and career goals.
Coming out of this programme, graduates will have learned and demonstrated transferable skills that are valued by employers in the sport, exercise and leisure industry.
Please also note that Player Development is only available as a customised programme for specific employers. Get in touch with us for more information.
