Mindset of Professionalism

The idea of professionalism is at the heart of what we do with our student athletes. Professionalism is a transferable skill, and we have developed a mentoring plan that teaches these skills. Professionalism can be transferred into the classroom, just as former athletes have transferred what they have learned into a new career or part of their life.

Working with us will allow student athletes to develop emotional and social intelligence, as well as an understanding of physical and mental well-being. Our programme focuses on studying a range of Professionalism themes, through engaging and reflecting on personal goals stress management and self-control. This approach is designed to put student athletes in the best possible place for educational studies and to prepare student athletes for a stable career trajectory in case of injury and or sporting retirement. We transfer emotional intelligence into classroom studies and apply the same natural intelligence to formal education.

Our Professionalism mentoring programme can be delivered as a standalone programme or as part of an integrated syllabus housed within any of our Academy models of learning.
