This package consists of 4 courses to help create a shortlist of 6 – 10 personalised career or study options:
In this course, we start to explore the notion of Transition mindset, and how you can proactively shape your thinking to successfully manage this change in your life, whenever it occurs. Transition Mindset refers to the process of proactively thinking about what your life will be like after sport, how you want to live, and who you want to be as a person.
Just like visualisation and mental rehearsal is used in sport to help prepare you for a future event, transition mindset is your way of mentally rehearsing your transition to the next stage of your life so that you can perform in any adventure you choose for yourself.
In their simplest form, values are those things in life that are important to you. When you can identify and link your own personal values to the team (in sport) or organisation (in life), you’ll naturally improve motivation and resilience and experience greater personal satisfaction and enjoyment. In this course, we use the highly-effective Values Determination Process created by John Demartini to help identify those key values and how they can be used to identify career paths that will be both rewarding and enjoyable.
To create options that align with who you are and what you may want to achieve, we have developed a framework that matches your strengths, interests and lifestyle considerations and aligns them to courses and careers available in the employment market. Our course walks you through each process using a specifically designed online career development tool that creates a personalised study or career options shortlist.
This course is ideal for those athletes wanting to better understand study or career options or those wanting confirmation that their existing thinking is on the right track! Perfect for a current or transitioning athlete, the course will help bring clarity to your career or study options and help reduce any anxiety you may be feeling around making these important decisions.
Behavioural Profiling using the Personal Profile Analysis (PPA) tool, is a fantastic exercise in self-awareness. It allows for a greater understanding of our preferred working styles and our working strengths, as well highlighting those areas which support our working strengths. An understanding of your behavioural profile can lead to greater clarity on what types of roles or careers you may be suited to as well as an awareness of how those around may prefer to behave.
The course utilises a simple questionnaire which produces a report detailing your behavioural preferences, motivators and how these relate to career decisions. As well as creating greater self-awareness, this process also helps ensure you are moving toward career paths that are an ideal fit and not wasting time seeking jobs that don’t suit.
In this package, we will teach you how to leverage the skills you have acquired as an athlete and combine them into a powerful presentation that employers will find hard to resist. In our experience, most athletes don’t take the time to organise and articulate the strengths they have and how they apply to opportunities in the real world.
The outcome of these combined courses is a professional and practised representation of all the skills and potential you bring to a business or position. Together, this ensures you can put your best foot forward and start developing opportunities for your future.
Completing this package will also allow you to be promoted into our elite networking and employment community, which has access to a range of events and job opportunities with leading businesses.
Suitable For: Athletes who already have a clear understanding of what they want to do and are ready to start creating options, whether you are an existing athlete who is keen to develop business or career options, or an athlete in transition who is ready to show the world what you can do.

Having a detailed, yet succinct Resumé, which accurately reflects your skills, qualifications and experience and how they relate to a certain role or industry, will go a long way to helping secure that all-important interview. Without one, it is almost impossible to even get past the initial application stage.

Through understanding how to structure your Resumé in the correct manner, you will ensure that potential employees get a true reflection of what you offer and how you are a suitable match to a job.
The importance of Google searches and social media in today’s employment world cannot be overstated. This is particularly true of online information gathering tools such as LinkedIn. When considering a candidate for a position, employers will engage these tools; as they are effectively your online profile and resumé, having a strong and professional presence is essential. Creating the right impression online also gives you the ability to connect with people around the world, search for jobs and promote yourself and your interests.

Just like preparing for a big game, 80% of creating confidence for an interview is knowing you’ve done the work. It involves developing a strategy around what your strengths are and how to apply them to the company you are talking to. It also requires having an understanding of some of the potential challenges and preparing for how you will handle these, and then practising your responses so you can handle any situation.
In this course, we show you how to prepare for an important interview, what research you should do and how you can exhibit the strong skills and experiences you bring with you from your sporting career. We will look at the importance of non-verbal communication, as well as get you to practise likely questions and review and reflect on your answers, so that you can feel confident when you walk into the room, that you are ready to impress.
