The aim of this unit is to provide students with an opportunity to gain experience in a professional or community sporting organisation. Building upon the knowledge acquired in the previous units, students will be encouraged to independently perform tasks under supervision, and to lead the operations in a professional and ethical manner. This can be achieved in the form of an internship and/or a major research project with an industry partner. The unit will also prepare students with knowledge and skills to plan and execute a major body of research.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

  1. Exhibit the theoretical and practical knowledge required to implement evidence-based practices appropriate for the environment in which they are operating;

  3. Exhibit an ability to work ethically and safely in the industry; and
  4. Investigate a research question that is relevant to the industry partner to devise an outcome that can influence their practice.
