About this course

The high performance sport industry is increasingly focused on developing employees and athletes with strong leadership skills and training in ethics and social responsibility. Proposed regulatory changes within the industry may make these skills a necessity. This course is designed to address these industry demands by developing specialist knowledge and skills for leadership and communication in high performance sport settings. The course addresses its curriculum underpinned by dignity, self-worth and respect for others as a nuance to professionalism that makes such professionals more effective and more highly valued leaders. The course targets experienced professionals in the High Performance Sport industry. Given these professionals are working, often in national and international contexts, the Graduate Certificate in High Performance Sport Leadership is designed to accommodate these commitments. Thus, the major design feature of the course is primarily online, with an intensive on-campus component incorporated to support this delivery and provide students with critical learning opportunities relevant to training in leadership and communication. Moreover, the intensive component will provide the added opportunity to network directly with industry specialists and other students in the course. The course is a pathway into ACU’s Master of High Performance Sport and Graduate Diploma in High Performance Sport.
