Supporting Champions Steve-Ingham-books Graduate to Performance

By: Dr. Steve Ingham

"No one prepared me for leaving my studies! I don't even know where to begin. Why can't I find the industry perspective on finding and securing a job?"

Surely it can’t be that difficult can it? You just hand in your big dissertation, get your grades and then apply for the 100s of jobs out there, saunter into an interview and fight back offers from all the top employers – right? Wrong! Sorry to tell you – you’ll need to do a lot more than that!

When leaving your studies, you’re about to experience one of the biggest life transitions so far and trust me no-one has prepared you the way we will. This course is designed specifically for those people who are prepared to go the extra mile in readying themselves to succeed in upgrading your employability, studying the best pathway routes ahead, applying for jobs, interviewing for jobs and starting work.

"With GTP I have big goal for you - to support people like you with an ambition to work in sports and performance to seemlessly transition into the world of work and launch a successful career. The realities of working in the sports performance industry means that there is a strong possibility that you'll be exposed - not in a good way. The skills you'll be required to develop, demonstrate and excel at in work are rarely communicated and shared in such depth - in this course I'm going to help students and graduate cut through the confusion—to not only learn how to properly plan and launch their careers but to excel. If you want to increase your employability, help yourself to transition successfully to work and to set yourself up for career success - GRADUATE TO PERFORMANCE will provide you with that solution. I've distilled my experience of supporting 1000s of athletes and developing 1000s of performance professionals into this course, to help you take ownership of your future by following a proven path to success"
