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 sports 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 subject, students receive formative and summative feedback from subject staff and site supervisors on their progress and performance. Students keep a logbook that tracks activities that are undertaken and complete a reflection that evaluates their learning experiences on placement.
