Those engaged in sport development devise ways of enabling individuals to start, stay and succeed in sport. In essence much of the sport development process is about promoting positive behaviour change (e.g. from inactivity to activity) and creating a supportive environment for this change to occur. It is therefore imperative that professionals working in this area have the appropriate underpinning knowledge and skill to enable this process. We provide you with the knowledge and skills required for employment within the sport industry.
Why Study Sport Development with us?
