About the program
The program teaches skills for lifelong career management by providing sport, exercise and recreation industry placements linked to embedded curriculum. All placements are covered by a current Career Development & Employment placement contract that formally recognises the student's CDE involvement with a community organisation.
Career development and employability education is a core unit in the second and/or final years of most degree courses within the College. You can gain a level of self-understanding that will enable you to target a job that matches your personality, career values, interests and preferred job skills. As well as career-focused education, you will develop a career portfolio of real work achievements while studying. These are acquired during their course through:
- class-based learning in the workplace
- 70 and/or 140 hours of career placement
- voluntary or paid work opportunities provided by over 350 sport, exercise and recreation organisations who recruit College of Sport and Exercise Science students each year.
