Inside Track

The Inside Track mentoring programme aims to link future graduates with industry professionals who could support their transition and help them nurture their careers. The initiative offers students the opportunity to share their concerns and queries with those who have experienced them.

Developing a career in a dynamic and competitive industry can be challenging. The sports science and coaching industry provides a particular set of career choices with its diverse nature, varied opportunities, routes for progression and differing work schedules.

Mentoring is about forging a relationship that enables more experienced and knowledgeable individuals to provide guidance, support and advice to less experienced, early-career individuals.

Mentee Benefits

The benefits for students on our sports science and coaching courses include networking and career development opportunities, access to the latest industry developments and thinking from leading organisations and the potential to develop greater self awareness, set new goals and to challenge self limiting career myths.

Mentor Benefits

For organisations involved in Inside Track, it can help with an increased profile amongst enthusiastic and engaged future graduates, fresh ideas and new perspectives on sports science and coaching, as well as access to the latest academic methods and thinking.
