This subject provides embedded experiential learning by linking students with industry professionals who are currently working within various high performance sport environments. Students engage with expert panel sessions, including guest presenters from a range of backgrounds (e.g. Australian team sports, international leagues, Olympic sports, elite high schools etc.). Students also work closely with industry based mentors, both individually and in small groups. These facilitated sessions enable mentors to share their knowledge across a range of career skills. These experiences help students map their own career skills and create progression plans, and utilise mentor relationships to guide them through a significant period of professional growth.
