Career Outcomes in Sports and Fitness

These can include jobs such as; sports broadcaster, journalist, physiotherapist, film analyst, photographer, coach, business administrator, sponsorship manager, and more.

These career prospects are often more dynamic and offer greater opportunities than the name implies. A career in sports management goes beyond simply managing a player, or being an agent with a portfolio of clients. For the more scientifically inclined, a career as a statistician, sports nutritionist or sports psychologist is an ideal choice. There are also many opportunities in sports public relations, event organising, and advertising executive positions.

  • There are also high levels of potential earnings available, with test cricketers earning over $900,000 per year and above
  • The sports industry has a high level of self-employment and small business, especially with personal trainers who can earn upwards of $120,000

Certificate

If you do not have prior qualifications, or wish to step into an entry level role, there are many certificate level courses that are available. Such certificates are usually completed in short time-frames, with a standard Certificate IV taking 12 months, studying for 8 hours a week to complete. These include qualifications such as a Certificate IV in Fitness, which may assist you in furthering your dream of becoming a self-employed fitness instructor. Or you could undertake a Certificate level trainers course, designed to advance your skills in areas such as coaching and development. Many of these are available as online-study modes, offering excellent opportunities to learn at your own pace and in your own time. These certificates are often a pathway into further study, and may even be prerequisites for some higher education courses.

Diploma

A Diploma level course is a next step in advancing your career. With options available through both online and on-campus study methods, these offer further insight and learning into a career path, and may open up even more doors for sports career hopefuls. A standard Diploma takes 18 months to complete, however, there are often options receive credit if you have previously completed a Certificate IV in a related discipline. If this is the case, you will usually only require an additional 6 months of study to obtain a Diploma. For example, a student may study a Certificate IV in Sports Nutrition, then progress to a Diploma of Advanced Sports Nutrition and graduate within 6 months, ready to join the workforce as a nutritionist – either with a company or working as a freelance advisor.

Bachelor Degree

A Bachelor’s degree is the highest level of undergraduate study you can do. Usually takes 3 years of full-time study to complete, with some advanced courses taking 4, this will allow you to work in a variety of positions and gain an advantage over less qualified applicants. Some jobs require no less than a Bachelor’s position, and this is especially the case in the more science-focused sports careers such as a sports physiotherapist. These can often be entered through achieving the required ATAR score in High-School, or by progressing from a Diploma. A Bachelor can open you up to more specialised and advanced positions such as a sports scientist, administrative and statistician positions, and more including a sports psychologist. There are both online and on-campus study options for most courses.

What Skills and Responsibilities Do You Need?
