Alumni Mentor Program

Alumni are major contributors to the Professional Practice course and form an integral part of the Professional Practice program.

Alumni link Sport Science, Exercise and Health to industry, provide placements and supervision, conduct interviews, provide mentorship, and give relevant feedback.

This involvement is on a voluntary basis and graduates speak of loyalty to the School, assisting in training of future colleagues, up-skilling of the profession and the opportunity to evaluate future employees.

The Professional Practice program is also supported by many WA companies who provide sponsorship, partnerships, placements and who source staff through the employment service developed.
