Industry opportunities on this course are diverse to ensure you develop the skills, experience and connections needed for your graduate career. Many of our students secure graduate roles with their work placement employers.
Work placements and experience
Supported work placements are central to your learning and development on this degree. Over three years you’ll undertake up to 200 hours of professional experience in schools, school sports clubs or sports clubs.
Many of our students choose to work for one of our partner organisations including Active Gloucestershire, TT Adventures, Hartpury Primary School, Gloucester and Forest Alternative Provision School, Marling Grammar School and Badminton Independent School.
Others decide to gain experience through their own relationships further afield. Through the support of our ICE department and your tutor, we will support you to secure a placement to match your interests and career goals.
Industry opportunities are largely based in-house during your foundation year. Here you’ll have the opportunity to gain experience working alongside Hartpury members of staff, including with the academy and our sports teams. In the past, students have helped run several sporting events, such as the Hartpury 7s and Hartpury 5k.
