Sports students to meet industry partners
Students from the Higher National Diploma in Sport course at Highlands College will meet with members of the sports industry, at a meet and greet event, to discuss career options and expectations.
The course was designed alongside key members of the sporting community including Jersey Sport, Jersey Football Association and Jersey Reds, who will attend the event.
The 11 students, who began the course on Monday 23 September, are being given the opportunity to meet with key members and employers. The students will be able to hear more about working in the industry, what challenges they may face and how the role of sport in Jersey is changing.
Senator Steve Pallett, who has political responsibility for sport, is due to attend the event on the 30 September at Highlands, he said: “The event will be a fantastic opportunity for students to hear how the industry is being promoted with the aim of encouraging islanders to be more active.
“The role sport plays, in mental and physical health, as well as general wellbeing, should continue to be supported and developed. The event should allow for constructive discussions and ideas, with focus on Jersey Sport and the Government’s work to enable greater opportunities for islanders to live more healthy, active lifestyles.”
Senator Steve Pallett will attend the event with the sports students and meet with key partners on the island such as representatives from the Jersey Sport Foundation, Jersey FA, Jersey Cricket, Jersey Reds, Jersey Bulls as well as members from private leisure facilities and clubs.
Highlands College will host the event on Monday 30 September in the College’s Academy Restaurant, where a breakfast meet and greet will take place from 9am.
