Description

In this subject, students undertake preparatory interactive coursework followed by a professional internship with an organisation in the sport and exercise industry. This assists in practical and professional development, application of knowledge, and establishing contacts which contribute to the achievement of future career goals. Through their internship, students are exposed to the managerial and practical functions and activities of the sport industry, and are given an opportunity to apply and extend the skills and knowledge they have developed in other subjects. Following the preparatory coursework, students are required to undertake between 140 and 210 hours of work with an industry-based organisation and complete an agreed program of work designed to achieve predetermined learning objectives. Throughout the internship process, students receive formative feedback on their curriculum vitae and performance. Students keep a logbook throughout their internship and complete a report on their learning outcomes at its conclusion, where they also receive an evaluation of their performance from their workplace supervisor.
