Through the year students will have practical learning experience while they complete the Diploma which will enable the students to pursue careers as school sports coordinators, recreation programmers, sport specific coaches, coaching coordinators, sport administrators, event managers, personal trainers, or continue study on the Bachelor in Applied Sport and Exercise Science.
