Career Management Skills

An initial session on career options will be offered by the team from the Centre for Personal and Career Development within the unit Introduction to Football Studies at Level 1, to enable you to explore all the options available at the University to support your career choices right from the start.
 
At Level 5 you will be expected to enhance their career-related and employability skills through interactive exercises, group activities and individual reflection. These processes are often problematic and unnatural to students, differing to experiences in more traditional subject-based units. The focus falls on you to reflect on your own approaches, learning styles and skills; no textbook shows what works best for you, thus a degree of self-discovery is required and you should be in charge of the process. You will be encouraged to ask appropriate questions and increase the use of feedback.
 
By Level 6 you will also be encouraged to develop their critical thinking skills, coinciding with the transition to less tutor-led and greater peer- and self-feedback, and `management of tutor strategies (Lawrence 2007).
 
You will also be encouraged to contact / join associations and organisations with a view to developing events management experience on a voluntary basis, such as:
  • The Institute of Sport and Recreation Management (http://www.isrm.co.uk/)
  • Leisure Studies Association (http://www.leisure-studies-association.info/)
