Last week we were delighted to welcome students from Bishop Druitt College (Coffs Harbour) onto our campus! 😄

Back at school, students have been completing the ACPE elective course ‘Elite Sporting Performance and Careers in Sport’. Joining us on campus enabled students to enhance their learning alongside ACPE staff.

Highlights from their visit included interviewing new ACPE Sports Performance Lecturer Fraser Thurlow on his pathway as an AFL player, and a visit to the GWS Giants HQ. 🤩

With such fantastic students and staff, we look forward to developing this exciting course even more with Bishop Druitt College.

Throwback to Awards night with a few of your 2023 award winners! 🥳💛


Samantha Dale is currently completing an Associate degree of Sport Business with us, while continuing to raise her personal best in long jump! Our students continue to impress us with their dedication to their sport and studies!! 😊

Read all about our elite athlete, her amazing achievements and journey below! 🤩🤩

Long jumper Samantha Dale ought to be the beacon of hope for any young athlete whose absence of trophies on their shelves at home belies their wholehearted efforts at training, depth of their desire, or grandeur of their dreams.

Dale’s career biography notes – somewhat ingloriously – that the 22-year-old NSWIS scholarship holder was the schoolgirl athlete who didn’t qualify for the Little Athletics NSW under 13s team. Furthermore, it also documents that as an under-14s and 15s athlete, she didn’t make the top eight in either long or triple jump at the state championships.

Eight years on and Dale, who seized the 2022 national title, has represented Australia at two World Championships, and competed at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, explained how biology frustrated her progress in school sport.

Through ACPE's partnership network and industry connections, current students and alumni are constantly provided with opportunities within their chosen field.

Second year, Bachelor of Education (PHE) student Fadilah Haffejee will be heading to America next year for a 9-week work placement at a Summer Camp. The camp begins in the middle of June and has no impact on Fadilah's ACPE timetable. This great opportunity from American Summers provides Fadilah with insight into working with children! 🥳

Fadilah originally found the opportunity through our Careers Hub & attended the Careers Fair to meet with the American Summers stall holders about the role. ☀️⛺🛶


ACPE had the privilege of hosting Dr. Diana Reklaitiene, Rector at the Lithuanian Sports University. Our partnership with the Lithuanian Sports University now extends to include participation in the esteemed Erasmus program for both academic staff and students. We are eager to discover other potential areas of collaboration with our colleagues in Lithuania. 🤩


A big THANK YOU again to all ACPE's partners and students for their presence at our recent Careers Fair.

The event helps students explore career paths and provides networking connections in the sports industry. We even had a couple of great successes with students being offered interviews on the spot, go team!
